Simon Callow's Introduction to The Picture of Dorian Gray in The Guardian

Folio edition among the bestsellers of new membership year

The Guardian newspaper will feature an edited version of Simon Callow's specially commissioned introduction to The Picture of Dorian Gray on Saturday 19 September. The Folio edition of Oscar Wilde's classic gothic novel is proving to be one of our top-selling new books.

In his introduction, the celebrated actor and director explores how the novel echoes its author's life. Despite Wilde's famous claim in his Preface that 'to reveal art and conceal the artist is art's aim', Callow concludes that 'Wilde stands nakedly revealed'. You can read more about our edition here.
