What made the experience of listening to Wilde in America the most enjoyable?
The style was vivid like a novel.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved getting to see how Wilde behaved in America - his reactions, his weekly routines.
Which scene was your favorite?
Wilde interacts with coal miners in Colorado. Classic Wilde.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
One of the most interesting threads throughout the story Wilde's photo-shoot in New York with Napoleon Sarony. I like the history of how those photos were misused and because of early copyright laws.
Any additional comments?
Not a fan of Friedmans' assumptions at the end of the book concerning Wilde's demise. It is one of my pet-peeves when critics try to pretend that they have a perfect understanding of Wilde's motives to take legal action against Queensburry.
It was a good read though. Loads of work went into researching
A wonderful portrayal of the inimitable Oscar Wilde woth a foxus on his travels in America. Great performance by the narrator.
