Gyles Brandreth has had a wide, varied and illustrious career as a writer, broadcaster, actor, public speaker and minister of parliament. As the honorary president of The Oscar Wilde Society, the author of the Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries and owner of over 100 books on the eminent figure, it is fair to say that he is also a committed Oscar Wilde enthusiast.
Gyles has written the introduction to Beautiful and Impossible Things: Selected Essays of Oscar Wilde and joined us in the studio to talk about the work of his hero. We spoke about Wilde book recommendations, the myth of Oscar Wilde and what the Oscar Wilde Society get up to.
I did enjoy this, it passed away a bit of a trip to the airport and I do enjoy Gyles Brandreth, yes I know he is very full of himself, and yes the over stressed sibilants grate on the ears but to be fair I grudgingly do enjoy listening to him. Thank you it was a good listen, and .... now here's praise indeed, I'd listen to it again. Thank you and it was free... I love free..
