Ocar Wilde – Table Talk

 

Table Talk is an interesting little book, because it’s a collection of the anecdotes that Oscar Wilde used to tell at dinner parties. A notorious wit and speaker, people agreed that when he told his stories, he seemed to light up – one woman thought she saw a halo, and other people were known to faint after one of his impromptu readings.

Edited by Thomas Wright and containing a foreword by Peter Ackroyd (whoever that is), it’s a lovely little collection that’s beautifully bound in a high quality hardback edition. Better still, it’s easy to whizz through it; I read the entire book in a day, although the editor recommends dipping in and out of it instead, to get more of a feel for what it would have been like to have known Wilde and to have heard him talking.

Overall then, this is a fantastic little addition to your book collection, and a great read if you like Oscar Wilde. The only problem with it was that the anecdotes are just too short!
