Publisher's Summary

The Picture of Dorian Gray is Oscar Wilde's only novel, perhaps because he realized that he could never again equal this timeless masterpiece. It is a unique work, both thought-provoking and horrifying. It vacillates between seemingly aimless conversation and riveting narrative in telling the story of a young man's quest for eternal youth and beauty, a quest that ends in scandal and depravity. It has been adapted numerous times for television, film, and the stage.

Audible Editor Reviews

In Oscar Wilde's only novel, Dorian Gray elects for a beautiful portrait of him to age rather than he, so that Dorian may pursue a life of debauchery without consequence. Both ornate and arrogant, Grenville Peter Mills' performance perfectly suits this story. He uses his full vocal range to capture the stylized language and humor of the work. His voice is at once admiring and judgmental, much like Dorian's world. With skilled pacing, Mills builds suspense right up to the gothic final twist. With Wilde and Mills combining forces, this notorious hedonistic story is unstoppable entertainment.
