I recently read Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. I think I might be the only person in America that wasn't required to read this novel in high school (except for my fellow CHS alums!). As I think I've mentioned a few times (here, here and here), I love classic literature. This is definitely a must read.
"In the wild struggle for existence, we want to have something that endures, and so we fill our minds with rubbish and facts, in the silly hope of something keeping our place."
