Summary
"Robbie Ross is best known as the young man who first seduced Oscar Wilde and at the end acted as Wilde's devoted and able literary executor. He achieved something his lover appeared incapable of - maintaining a firm position within the establishment while living an openly homosexual life, at a time when that was all too often a recipe for disgrace or prison. This portrait of a chameleon figure - at once radical and conservative - gives a vivid picture of life in London at the turn of the nineteenth century."--Jacket
