Truly Wilde: The Unsettling Story of Dolly Wilde.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Schenkar, Joan.

Publisher Information:
Basic Books, New York: 2000.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Dolly Wilde, the neice of Oscar Wilde, lived an extraordinary though creatively unproductive life in her uncle's shadow. But her literary short-comings did not prevent her from making her social mark on Paris in the 20s especially in the company of the renown lesbian salonist Natalie Barney. Dolly Wilde was a modernist gender-bender in the 1920s known for her self-detructive and magnetic personality which garnered her the title of the "beautiful loser of the Wilde family."
