The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

The Picture of Dorian GrayWho decides what book (or any other art, for that matter) is decreed “a classic”? Having heard references to this book all of my adult life, I figured I should finally read it. Yes, I’m sure I’m missing the finer nuances of imagery, blahblahblah, but what a stupid, insipid book! I read it as the plane carried me, non-stop, from one coast to the other and I still resent the time that took out of my life! Find your own “classic” and enjoy it!
