  • A declaration of not only the genius of Oscar Wilde, but also that of Simon Drew
  • An absolute must for the multitude of Drew zealots out there, and an excellent introduction to the world of Drew for the poor unfortunates who have yet to discover him
Full Description
The genius of Oscar Wilde has so often been compared with that of Simon Drew, and for the very first time you can witness the best work of the two intellectual maestros in the same volume. If you want to see an illustration of "I have nothing to declare but my genius" you won't find it in this book. If you can recall Wilde's witty comment that has something to do with "gutters" and "looking at the stars" you won't find it here. The most famous, (and corny) Wilde lines have been avoided and replaced instead with his most interesting quotations. They have been combined with suitable cat and dog illustrations, in the usual Drew style, that will sometimes clarify (but more likely confuse) the meanings of Wilde's quips. If you want a book to give you guidance, and to supply you with a philosophy to live your life by, this isn't the book for you. If you want a good laugh and the ability to pass Wilde's most obscure remarks off as your own, buy it. Buy it now.
