Overview

Coffee with Oscar Wilde (Coffee with...Series) by Merlin Holland

Oscar Wilde’s own grandson, with the help of actor and author Simon Callow—who has performed Wilde’s work on stage—capture the essence of this wittiest of all playwrights. Set in Paris, where he fled after the scandalous trial that revealed his homosexuality, Wilde chats about language, his mother (an esteemed Irish folklorist), transforming his life into a work of art (“My great tragedy is that I put my genius into my life—and only my talent into my work”), his time in prison, his concept of morality, and why he thinks “in life, style, not sincerity, is the essential.”
