There is a new library thingy at office, and this is the first book I ordered. I ordered it more for the “& other stories”, but turned out there there none. I do like Oscar Wilde and this though not one of the favourites is still a good read. And you read Oscar Wilde for the witty one-liners more than anything!

The tale is very much a Victorian plot; The woman with a past and her seducer coming face-to-face in a social setting. Come to think of it, Indian society still thinks like the son, and they are not even ready to come their senses as he did.

It does have a hell of an ending line, though.. ;)
