Michèle Mendelssohn | Making Oscar Wilde

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the bookshop.

Join Michèle Mendelssohn for a reading and signing her new biography, Making Oscar Wilde.

Witty, inspiring, and charismatic, Oscar Wilde is one of the Greats of English literature. Today, his plays and stories are beloved around the world. But it was not always so. His afterlife has given him the legitimacy that life denied him. 'Making Oscar Wilde' reveals the untold story of young Oscar's career in Victorian England and post-Civil War America. Set on two continents, it tracks a larger-than-life hero on an unforgettable adventure to make his name and gain international acclaim. "Success is a science," Wilde believed, "if you have the conditions, you get the result."
