More about the Picture of Dorian Gray

Why do I want to say the “portrait” of Dorian Gray?

Dorian Gray has made a pact—he’ll stay young, his portrait
will grow old.  Ah, science fiction, you say, and turn away.
The thing is, just read along—let’s see where it goes.

I’m a little more than midway through—Oscar Wilde is
being a tease I think—-not giving us too much meat for a plot.
I secretly do have a pretty good turn of events that could happen
in case he doesn’t think of it.

I have read “The Importance of Being Earnest” twice–the second time
was last summer just before I went to see the movie.  That sails
right along–but Dorian—am dragging my feet a little.

I wonder what the book club is thinking.  Our meeting’s next
Tuesday night—I’ll save you a seat.


You already know me---I'm in your book club. I've been in your book club in Wisconsin, in New York, in Missouri, in Connecticut. Now I'm in your book club in Pennsylvania. I love books! (I also collect buttons!) I'm looking forward to having conversations about books with people just like you----who also love books and want to talk about them. Send me an email: booksandbooks (at) me about a book you are reading. (or buttons of interest)
