Teacher Man by Frank McCourt.
Contemporary / American English.
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Fantasy & Horror / British English
'When we are happy, we are always good,' says Lord Henry, 'but when we are good, we are not always happy.'
Lord Henry's lazy, clever words lead the young Dorian Gray into a world where it is better to be beautiful than to be good; a world where anything can be forgiven - even murder - if it can make people laugh at a dinner party.
