It is that time of the week again where we share a book quote that seemed particularly striking for us.
For the month of February, our book quote theme is: Love.
One of the novels my teenage daughter and I abandoned last year was The Picture Of Dorian Gray (Amazon | Book Depository). Too dark, too self-absorbed, too misogynistic (see more here). I did not realize just how much of a woman hater Oscar Wilde must have been, when I was smitten by his writing during my early 20s. I bought his De Profundis (Amazon | Book Depository) while I was in Dublin. I am still pretty eager to get to some of his more autobiographical writings. Perhaps it will give me a different insight into who he was, what he loved, and what motivated him to write in the first place.
