This brilliant and often overlooked story is a wonderful commentary on how Wilde saw "free" America challenging "traditional" England - all under the guise of a charming, heartwarming and comical book.

The book includes an illustrated Character List (like a Dramatis Personae), over 120 pages of story artwork, and fascinating support material that details the life and work of Oscar Wilde - all beautifully presented in color.

This title has been moderately and sympathetically abridged from the original text to fit within the graphic novel format, but still features the entire Wilde dialogue.

Like all of their titles, this Classical Comics production remains true to the original novel, and features incredible artwork that will engage any reader.
