Audible Editor Reviews

One of the guests at Lady Windermere's party is a palm reader named Mr. Podgers. Lord Arthur is naturally intrigued by his presence and demands a reading, though he notices something peculiar about Podgers' face when he is predicting Lord Arthur's future. When pressed, Podgers divulges that Lord Arthur will murder someone. Scared of this premonition, Lord Arthur separates from his fiancée, hoping to fulfill his destiny before marrying her. Oscar Wilde's short story is full of his trademark witticisms and insight, which Rupert Degas delivers with a charming, light touch, and he embodies Wilde's odd characters with entertaining fervor.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories collection.

A palmist's prediction leads to murder; an enigmatic woman's lifestyle is a mystery to be solved; a ghost tries to frighten the new tenants of his home; a man has discovered the dedicatee of Shakespeare's Sonnets; a millionaire wants to be painted as a pauper. Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories is a collection of fascinating short stories that are subversive as well as entertaining. Also included in this audiobook is 'The Birthday of the Infanta from A House of Pomegranates', in which an ugly dwarf loves a beautiful princess. How will his feelings fare in a cruel society?
