The Picture Of Dorian Gray (Softcover)
Oscar Wilde

Dorian Gray is arrogant. He is pompous, selfish, devastatingly narcissistic, and for much of his life he has never had to think twice about the ramifications of his actions. When the arrival of artist Basil Hallard forces Gray to confront his deepest insecurities, Dorian's most vulnerable self is imminently revealed. After having traded his righteousness for riches, Dorian Gray becomes faced with many regrettable truths he must learn to tackle head on. Needing to own up to his actions, Gray must finally learn to deal with the consequences of living a life that completely self-obsessed. Gripping with relatable prose analogous to the many conundrums of growing up, Wilde weaves a narrative of both self-desire and self-actualization. The Picture of Dorian Gray is a true coming of age tale in a time where the glamour of appearances was as heavy as the currency in your pocket.
