Inspired by Oscar Wilde’s classic novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, Mitzi Szereto’s Wilde Passions of Dorian Gray continues where Wilde left off with the Faustian tale of a man of eternal youth and great physical beauty who lives a life of corruption, decadence and hedonism. The story begins in the bordellos of Jazz-Age Paris, moving to the opium dens of Marrakesh and the alluring anonymity of South America. In his pursuit of sensation and carnal thrills, Dorian’s desires turn increasingly extreme and he leaves behind yet more devastation and death. He ultimately settles in present-day New Orleans, joining with a group of like-minded beings known as The Night People. They inadvertently return to Dorian his humanity when he falls in love with a young woman he rescues from becoming their victim. She will be his redemption, but she will also be his final curse.
Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.
The soul is a terrible reality. It can be bought, and sold and bartered
away. It can be poisoned, or made perfect.
TAKE A WALK OF THE WILDE SIDE.
I would give this book 1 X.
I was given a complimentary copy of THE WILDE PASSIONS OF DORIAN GRAY by Mitzi Szereto and Cleis Press for my honest opinion. No other compensation was exchanged.
