Book Review: A Purple Thread

Author: Nina Antonia

Subtitle: The Supernatural Doom of Oscar Wilde

This booklet, published by “The Peculiar Parish of Fiddler’s Green” is utterly charming in both content and design. Just holding it and paging through is a pleasurable experience, and then when you begin reading, a whole new world (to me, anyway) unfolds with each page. As soon as I finished it, I went back to the start again, as if riding a soothing, lovely amusement park ride.

If you’re a regular reader of mine, (thank you) you might recall that just over a year ago I was reading my first Oscar Wilde story. So, I can hardly be considered knowledgable about the man, but nonetheless I enjoyed this author’s exploration of occult and esoteric connections across his life and publications. I definitely have a new appreciation forming, and I look forward to exploring more of his works and legacy.

I got my copy of this book from Quimby’s in Chicago, and I encourage you to do the same, but you must also do yourself the favor of browsing the publisher’s website.
