Canterville Ghost, The
O. Wilde, L. Zwerger
(Michael Neugebauer (North South Books), Nov. 1, 1996)
Oscar Wilde was the master of the studied insult. His jabs at hypocrisy, pretense and boring conventionality still have a penetrating power. His snubs and put-downs became the talk of his time, no less by his targets than by Wilde himself. This illustrated collection features over 750 of his biting comments.
