Having recently completed a musical adaptation of Oscar Wilde's Canterville Ghost, which I call The Ghost Of Canterville Chase, in which I use an actor playing Oscar to provide occasional narrative, I wanted to read what the reporters in various newspapers across the country had to say about him. Oscar was only 26 at the time of his tour and the comments from dozens of reporters are very similar and many are funny. One of Oscar's talks is also included in the book and parts are hilarious. "When I visited a town in the west they treated me to a three course dinner. Whiskey was the first course. Whiskey was the second course, and the third course was whiskey." Should add that a few years after, Oscar married and he and his wife had two sons. One was killed in battle during World War I; the second son became a writer and married a lady he worked with at the British Broadcasting Corporation. They had a son, Merlin Holland, who resides in France. He is now 67 years of age and is also a writer and lecturer. I mailed him a copy of the musical and asked him to contact me. Should add that Oscar Wilde's wife changed the family name to Holland after the homosexual trial of her husband, which sentenced him to two years of hard labor. Following prison he moved to France where he died penniless in his late 40s. For Oscar Wilde fans I would highly recommend this book.
