Why do I want to say the “portrait” of Dorian Gray?
Dorian Gray has made a pact—he’ll stay young, his portrait
will grow old. Ah, science fiction, you say, and turn away.
The thing is, just read along—let’s see where it goes.
I’m a little more than midway through—Oscar Wilde is
being a tease I think—-not giving us too much meat for a plot.
I secretly do have a pretty good turn of events that could happen
in case he doesn’t think of it.
I have read “The Importance of Being Earnest” twice–the second time
was last summer just before I went to see the movie. That sails
right along–but Dorian—am dragging my feet a little.
I wonder what the book club is thinking. Our meeting’s next
Tuesday night—I’ll save you a seat.
