This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.” ― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray A man sells his soul for eternal youth and scandalizes the city in Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Dorian Gray's extraordinary beauty wins the admiration of an artist who begins painting portraits of him, all but one depicting him as an ancient hero. This single portrait is of Dorian in his very essence; an honest depiction of his character and beauty. But when someone tells Dorian that beauty fades, he begins to see the portrait as a menacing thing, which will inevitably remind him of the beauty he once had. Dorian pledges his soul for a critical exchange: that the picture bears the burden of ageing and dishonour, and that he stays young and beautiful forever. As Dorian indulges in the most hedonistic of lifestyles, exploiting his own beauty and completely disbarring all morality, the portrait grows uglier and older while he shows no signs of physical degradation. Dorian Grayis a story of extreme selfishness, masked by the appeal of eternal beauty.

One of the sinuous and subtly crafted stories in Tobias Wolff's new collection--his first in eleven years--begins with a man biting a dog. The fact that Wolff is reversing familiar expectations is only half the point. The other half is that Wolff makes the reversal seem inevitable: the dog has attacked his protagonist's young daughter. And everywhere in The Night in Question, we are reminded that truth is deceptive, volatile, and often the last thing we want to know. A young reporter writes an obituary only to be fired when its subject walks into his office, very much alive. A soldier in Vietnam goads his lieutenant into sending him on increasingly dangerous missions. An impecunious mother and son go window-shopping for a domesticity that is forever beyond their grasp. Seamless, ironic, dizzying in their emotional aptness, these fifteen stories deliver small, exquisite shocks that leave us feeling invigorated and intensely alive. From the Trade Paperback edition.

"An excellent collection of some of Oscar Wilde's key works. A useful and representative selection of his writings, ideal for those not already familiar with his trademark wit or his more serious work, but equally valuable for the Wilde devotee." — newbooks magazine Poet and playwright Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) wrote sparkling comedies that were the toast of London's West End in the 1890s. The master of the witty epigram who could resist anything except temptation, Wilde was imprisoned by an unjust society and died in obscurity, but his enduring works continue to enchant readers and audiences. The Irish author's only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, appears in this splendid showcase of his philosophy and wit. Additional selections include Wilde's ever-popular comedies The Importance of Being Earnest and An Ideal Husband; his essay on aestheticism, "The Decay of Lying: An Observation"; his deeply moving prison letter, "De Profundis"; and fairy tales from A House of Pomegranates and The Happy Prince.

"Sejak awal, perangaimu, keangkuhanmu, sikap acuh tak acuhmu, jadi landasan kebencianku padamu. Belum sebulan mengenalmu, aku sudah tahu bahwa kau adalah pria yang takkan mungkin kunikahi." Di mata Elizabeth, Mr. Darcy tidak pernah menjadi sosok yang memesona. Baginya, laki-laki itu angkuh, sombong, dan menyebalkan. Elizabeth membenci tatapannya yang merendahkan, cara bicaranya yang meremehkan, dan segala hal tentang bangsawan kaya raya itu. Kebencian itu semakin bertambah ketika Elizabeth tahu bahwa Mr. Darcy telah melakukan hal yang menurutnya tak bisa dimaafkan.ÿ Butuh lama bagi Elizabeth untuk memahami sisi lain dari Mr. Darcy dan menerima kenyataan akan kebaikannya yang tersembunyi. Dan, ketika akhirnya gadis itu menyadari perasaannya kepada Mr. Darcy telah berkembang menjadi cinta, dia pun jadi ragu, akankah dia bisa menebus prasangkanya yang sangat buruk pada laki-laki itu? Lalu, akankah cintanya yang baru tumbuh itu menjadi sia-sia? Dalam Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen menuangkan detail yang memikat mengenai kaum menengah ke atas pada abad ke-19. Karakter-karakternya yang memukau, juga narasinya yang cerdas, menjadikan novel ini sebagai salah satu roman terpopuler sepanjang masa. [Mizan, Qanita, Novel, Memoar, Indonesia]
