In many ways the picture of Oscar Wilde in John Irving’s best-selling book, A Short Cut to Treason is not a very flattering one. There are some brilliant passages in this book and I will give you the highlights from my viewings. The first chapter is an apology for Wilde that acknowledges the mistake of naming his hero “Oscar.” It also portrays Wilde as a lovable and harmless rogue with eccentric tendencies.

In the second chapter, John Irving gets a real dose of Wilde as a lunatic. He mentions the Jack the Ripper murders that he was involved in which led to Wilde losing his job. He also narrates a fascinating visit to the notorious Baskerville cottages in the Hamptons. The cottages are mentioned for their proximity to the notorious Spitalfields and Ripper’s killings are traced back to them.

In the third chapter, the portrait of Wilde as a talented artist is revealed as he is seen at work on a large canvas. The most notable character to appear in this chapter is Emile Zola. He later appeared in the novels that Irving later turned into films and more famously as a portrait painter in the Paris in the 1980s. Overall, this is a charming read if you can overlook some of the flaws.
