@OscarWildeUK Read The Complete Works of Oscar Wilde as a 10-year old in Chennai. It was my neighbor's. I read it, and re-read it, until my neighbor said (when I borrowed it for the 3rd time), "Would you like to have it?" The best gift I ever received! It accompanied me to the US in '88.

@OscarWildeUK @stephenfry Love @stephenfry , one of my very favorite humans. I’d love to see Mr. Fry and Mr. Wilde (if he was alive) chat about.....everything. If you don’t know Mr. Fry, then your life is GREATLY diminished.

It’s so lovely to see my Wilde’s Women mentioned (with a link to his very positive review) in Michael Dirda’s absolutely delightful @washingtonpost essay on his collection of Wilde related books: @andrewlownie @Duckbooks @Matt_Casbourne @ABRAMSbooks

And it’s so lovely having Eleanor as an honorary patron to our society.
