A comedy/drama which revolves around blackmail and political corruption, and touches on the themes of public and private honor. The action is set in London and takes place within a single day. “Sooner or later,” Wilde notes, “we shall all have to pay for what we do.” But he adds that, “No one should be entirely judged by their past.”

The book has been adopted into several films including a recent popular big screen movie starring Julianne Moore, Minnie Driver, Jeremy Northam, Cate Blanchett and Rupert Everett.
