i love those books! :) oscar in them is so wonderful :D
will probably work then sadly :/

Usual story re me and this book. I have ordered it - it arrived a couple of months ago. It is sitting on the huge pile of things that I have to do which includes DVDs and books and CDs. Maybe attending this will encourage me to prioritise the book!

That will be a treat! I too love Gyles Brandreth's Oscar Wilde mystery series. The mixture of factual and fictional characters is such fun. :-)

I am hoping that this event will inspire me to prioritise the reading of these books over and above the 101 other things that I have on!
