The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

grayA surprisingly easy-to-read (for the era in which it was written) novel by Oscar Wilde about a vain young man named Dorian Gray. Mysteriously, he retains his youth, while his portrait ages. What I found most interesting (again, for the era) were the homosexual undertones and also the fact that the protagonist was not a particular likable character.
