More Lives Than One: The Remarkable Family of Oscar Wilde through the Generations

The story of Oscar Wilde and his extraordinary family is a remarkable one. His parents, the brilliant Sir William and flamboyant Lady Jane, also led amazing lives and experienced triumph and tragedy. His wife Constance Wilde had to change her name and live in exile until her death. An epic family saga against a background of rebellion and famine, this has new revelations on Oscar’s time in prison, his father’s cover up of his illegitimate daughters’ deaths and Oscar's mother’s dire poverty before her death. By linking the generations a more complete picture emerges of a brilliant Irishman whose tragic fall still breaks the reader’s heart.
