Editorial Reviews

Steeped in his trademark ironic wit, Oscar Wilde’s airtight short story "The Model Millionaire" documents the travails of the strapping, charming, and frustratingly destitute Hughie Erskine, who fortuitously stumbles across the 10,000 pounds he so desperately needs to secure the hand of his beloved Laura Merton, the daughter of a retired Colonel, in marriage.
The buoyancy of Wilde’s prose is enlivened by the accomplished vocal stylings of narrator Stephen Critchelow, whose spry, nimble performance injects a kinetic energy into this delightful audiobook.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories collection.
A palmist's prediction leads to murder; an enigmatic woman's lifestyle is a mystery to be solved; a ghost tries to frighten the new tenants of his home; a man has discovered the dedicatee of Shakespeare's Sonnets; a millionaire wants to be painted as a pauper. Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories is a collection of fascinating short stories that are subversive as well as entertaining. Also included in this audiobook is 'The Birthday of the Infanta from A House of Pomegranates', in which an ugly dwarf loves a beautiful princess. How will his feelings fare in a cruel society?
