Published to coincide with the centenary of the death of Oscar Wilde, this book provides a portrait of Robbie Ross - perhaps best known as the young man who first seduced Oscar Wilde, and at the end of Wilde's life acted as his executor. Robbie was a writer, critic, art dealer and administrator, and a pivotal figure on the London literary and artistic scene from the mid-1980s to his death towards the end of World War I. Above all he was Wilde's devoted friend, and years later his ashes were placed in Oscar's tomb as he had always wished.
