    kindle ´ The Picture of Dorian Gray â Paperback ë Oscar Wilde The Picture of Dorian GrayFacts that I know for sure1 I got this edition because I'm a slave to the aesthetics and that's exactly the kind of motive the ghost of Oscar Wilde would approve of2 It’s safe to assume that no matter what I’m doing at any given moment in time at least 20% of my brain capacity is perpetually dedicated to making sure I’m clever enough flamboyant enough petty enough gay enough dramatic enough to earn the approval of the ghost of Oscar Wilde
