Dorian Gray is arrogant. He is pompous, selfish, devastatingly narcissistic, and for much of his life he has never had to think twice about the ramifications of his actions.
When the arrival of artist Basil Hallard forces Gray to confront his deepest insecurities, Dorian’s most vulnerable self is imminently revealed. After having traded his righteousness for riches, Dorian Gray becomes faced with many regretable truths. Needing to own up to his actions, Gray must finally learn to deal with the consequences of living a life completely self-obsessed. Gripping with prose so relateable to the many connundrums of growing up, Wilde weaves a narrative of self-desire and self-actualization. A true coming of age tale in a time where the glamour of appearance was as heavy as the currency in your pocket.
