      An impressive collection short stories and fragments of plays that Wilde told at dinner parties but never bothered to write down. Since Wilde isn't coming to any of my dinner parties, the next best thing is to listen to them in audiobook format and try to use my faulty imagination to fill in the blanks.

      ebox: read (beautifully) by Tom Baker.Oral meanderings laid down in print after Wilde's lifetime.Because of the paraballic ramblings this gets a bit much, though some inserts are as sparkling as the champagne he insists his interviewers provide.

    3. Sandra says:

      Este pequeno livro não é apenas uma simples coleção de histórias de Wilde. Não. De todo!Antes de cada conto Wilderiano existe uma descrição breve do contexto em que tal história foi contada e por vezes quais os maneirismos de Wilde aquando desse relato. Desta feita permite a quem lê este livro, visualizar este fabuloso autor conhecendo-o mais profundamente enquanto génio da palavra, da ironia, da crítica e do humor.Eu como fã de Oscar Wilde tenho em grande estima este pequeno volume [...]

      Um livro fantástico!O facto de cada conto ter uma introdução, na qual se descreve um pouquinho da pessoa que era Wilde e em que contexto é que cada conto foi criado e contado, é extremamente original e interessante!E os contos, na sua maioria, são ou comoventes, ou divertidos ou simplesmente profundos e inteligentes. Ao ler este livro fico com uma vontade enorme de ter conhecido Oscar Wilde e de ter presenciado alguns dos seus serões no qual entretia os convidados com as suas histórias!! [...]

      You really were born in the wrong century Mr. Wilde. The world needs more of you. I truly wish I could have been one of the people to have been regaled with any of these little tales. It does help to picture him telling them as you read them.Sorry this is so short but I'm off to read more by him. All I can add is that this was really a lovely find for a fan.

      Of all the most beautifully brilliant human fireworks, Oscar Wilde must have been the finest.

      Table Talk is an interesting little book, because it’s a collection of the anecdotes that Oscar Wilde used to tell at dinner parties. A notorious wit and speaker, people agreed that when he told his stories, he seemed to light up – one woman thought she saw a halo, and other people were known to faint after one of his impromptu readings.Edited by Thomas Wright and containing a foreword by Peter Ackroyd (whoever that is), it’s a lovely little collection that’s beautifully bound in a high [...]

      Oscar Wilde never disappoints. This book is no exception. This book was an unexpected surprise, found on my friend list. These recountings of his oral story telling had me laughing in public. You can't get enough of his flair for the dramatic and his way with a tall tale. The ever surprising twist at the end of his stories and the intriguing tale that leads you to it blend together and create a perfect mental journey for the reader. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can see myself reading it a [...]

      One of my favorite writers. It's a shame he didn't write these stories down himself. All of the stories in this book are ones that Wilde only orated and were later written down by others after his death, so I suggest reading a good amount of his writing before you pick this up. You need a good understanding of Wilde's writing and particularly his speeches so that you can use your imagination to fill in the gaps left by this work. A must read for any Oscar Wilde fan.

      A perfect first Oscar Wilde experience. My first introduction to the author. This book contains a description of Wilde, his stories and his character as a person. A nice detail was how he created stories from nothing during dinner parties, always being in focus. Major part is short stories and not sure if they appears in other book formats.

      Pequenos contos contados por Oscar Wilde, que foram posteriormente passados a escrito por quem os ouviu. Gostei bastante de alguns, rindo com o fim de alguns. Para reler um dia ;)

      The reader gets a sense of the magical presence that Oscar Wilde was in person.

      The purpose of the book is to capture the wit of Wilde, but it absolutely fails to do so.
