Audible Editor Reviews

Two old friends meet. One suggests, "women are meant to be loved, not to be understood". The other, sadly whispers, "I cannot love what I cannot trust", and shares his concern on learning a mysterious, beautiful woman’s secret just before she passes on, which is also shortly before they were scheduled to marry. Anthony Donovan brings Oscar Wilde’s school chums, as well as the enigmatic woman, to life with this performance of one of the Irish wit’s short stories, a selection from the Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime and Other Stories collection.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories collection.

A palmist's prediction leads to murder; an enigmatic woman's lifestyle is a mystery to be solved; a ghost tries to frighten the new tenants of his home; a man has discovered the dedicatee of Shakespeare's Sonnets; a millionaire wants to be painted as a pauper. Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories is a collection of fascinating short stories that are subversive as well as entertaining. Also included in this audiobook is 'The Birthday of the Infanta from A House of Pomegranates', in which an ugly dwarf loves a beautiful princess. How will his feelings fare in a cruel society?
