"Stylish, sexy and unspeakably cool…brilliantly drawn…a thoroughly engaging collection of images…a clever take on a classic story. A smartly dressed, intriguing adaptation." —Metro Weekly.
Oscar Wilde's Faustian tale of a young man who sells his soul for eternal youth is updated as a bold, stylish, and bloody contemporary thriller. London, 1988: Preternaturally handsome Dorian Gray has his portrait painted by his college classmate, the on-the-rise artist Basil Hallwood. When their mutual friend Henry Wotton offers to include it in a show, Dorian makes a fateful wish—that his portrait should grow old instead of him—and strikes an unspeakable bargain with the devil. So begins Dorian's steady decline into a life of depravity, following a twisted path that will lead him towards sexual deviance, violence, and much, much worse.
