The Picture of Dorian Gray

Written by Oscar Wilde | Narrated by Simon Vance
What would you do for eternal youth? A young man’s simple wish quickly becomes something much darker in this timeless novel of vanity, corruption, decadence — and madness. From an Audie Award–winning narrator who “finds the essence of each character, making Wilde’s work a delightfully creepy listen” (AudioFile).

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Dorian Gray, a handsome and narcissistic young man, lives thoughtlessly for his own pleasure—an attitude encouraged by the company he keeps. One day, after having his portrait painted, Dorian makes a frivolous Faustian wish: that he should always remain as young and beautiful as he is in that painting, while the portrait grows old in his stead.

The wish comes true, and Dorian soon finds that none of his wicked actions have visible consequences. Realizing that he will appear fresh and unspoiled no matter what kind of life he lives, Dorian becomes increasingly corrupt, unchecked by public opinion. Only the portrait grows degenerate and ugly, a powerful symbol of Dorian’s internal ruin.

Wilde’s dreamlike exploration of life without limits scandalized its late-Victorian audience and has haunted readers’ imaginations for more than a hundred years.
