I read it in: English
I liked it: Yes
Another very entertaining book in the series. I loved the theater atmosphere in Paris and Oscar’s excursion to the US.
There are several great scenes which allude to Oscar Wilde’s later life (or death) like his visit to Reading gaol, his statement that he hopes his children will never feel the need to change their family name or the talk about Molière’s grave.
“Isn’t Molière buried at Père Lachaise?” I said.
“Oh, now he is, yes, beneath a mighty monument. Now, pilgrims come to kiss his tomb.” My friend chuckled softly and took a sip of wine. “There is no logic to hypocrisy.”
This is a delightful mystery with interesting characters and an intriguing plot.
