Jeffrey Eugenides is the award-winning author of The Virgin Suicides;Middlesex, which won a Pulitzer Prize; and The Marriage Plot. Originally from Michigan, and educated at Brown University, he now lives in Berlin with his wife.
Written in his distinctively dazzling manner, Oscar Wildes story of a fashionable young man who sells his soul for eternal youth and beauty is the authors most popular work. The tale of Dorian Grays moral disintegration caused a scandal when it ?rst appeared in 1890, but though Wilde was attacked for the novels corrupting in?uence, he responded that there is, in fact, a terrible moral inDorian Gray. Just a few years later, the book and the aesthetic/moral dilemma it presented became issues in the trials occasioned by Wildes homosexual liaisons, which resulted in his imprisonment. Of Dorian Grays relationship to autobiography, Wilde noted in a letter, Basil Hallward is what I think I am: Lord Henry what the world thinks me: Dorian what I would like to bein other ages, perhaps.
