The Picture of Dorian Gray

by Oscar Wilde - £6.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141192642 | ISBN 10: 014119264x

Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman in the eyes of polite society. Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence.
 
The novel was a succès de scandale and the book was later used as evidence against Wilde at the Old Bailey in 1895. It has lost none of its power to fascinate and disturb.
