Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

McCormack (Institute of Irish Studies, Queens University, Belfast) tells the story of John Gray, a working class boy whose passionate friendship with Oscar Wilde made his name as the reputed model for Wilde's scandalous novel, The Picture of Dorian Grey. She traces Gray's life, from decadent poet to dedicated priest, and looks at Gray's shifting relationships with Wilde, and later, with his lifelong companion Andre Raffalovich, to reveal insights into literary society and the emerging gay culture of the period.
