book coverMeet Laura Lee, author of Oscar's Ghost: The Battle for Oscar Wilde's Legacy. After the death of Oscar Wilde, two of the playwright's closest friends – both former lovers –went to battle against each other over who would control the narrative about Wilde's life and whom history would blame for his death. Lee's new book is the first to focus solely on this heated feud and to consider, as fairly as possible, the dramatic events and questionable actions of all parties involved.
