The three stories in this book are about ordinary people, people like you and me; but they find themselves in surprising situations. Lord Arthur Savile, a rich man with no enemies, finds out that he must do something terrible before he can marry. Poor young Hughie Erskine gives money to an old beggar but the beggar is not what he seems. And Lord Murchison falls in love with a mystery woman but what is the strange secret behind the door in Cumnor Street?

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was a successful playwright of his day. His only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray was published in 1891.From AudioFile:
With the smooth assurance of Lord Arthur himself, Derek Jacobi delivers a superb performance of eight of Oscar Wilde's stories. Jacobi brings listeners directly into the parlors or manor houses of each story. Using vocal color and tone, he effortlessly describes the scenes and the characters–not as an outside observer, but as an unseen guest, perfectly at ease with the manner of the times. With equal ease, he delivers Wilde's satire, revealing the wit that makes the author's work endure. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
