what i like about 'testament' p 38 is that it lists gemstones 'amethyst etc..' without making a fetish of them. to me this is a tedious aspect of the portrait of dorian gray, as much as i like other things of wilde. mckenzie writes of politics, sex, fathers, nazism with a cool eye, not wallowing like many before and after.

Hi Michael,
Strange - i really must be the uninformed reader i always thought - the tedious aspects of Dorian Gray were the parts i most appreciated! Take care, duan.
