WILDE, O.: Picture of Dorian Gray (The) (Unabridged)

The beautiful young Dorian Gray has his portrait painted by society artist Basil Hallward. Admired by all, the dazzling, wealthy, handsome young man has everything anyone could wish for—or so it appears. Oscar Wilde’s novel is a masterly study of moral corruption, a tour de force of suspense and surprise.
