The blurb on the back:
In his introduction to this book, Derek Hudson says: 'At the time that he met Wilde, Douglas was far from being a paragon of morals. His tendency indeed seems to have been predominantly homosexual. There is no truth in the suggestion that Douglas corrupted Wilde, for the latter had been addicted to homosexual practices for at least five years before they met.'
Written in the closing years of Alfred Douglas's life, this book is a last word about Oscar Wilde by the man who, perhaps, knew him better than anybody.
