Sarah E. Holroyd

Author Sarah E. Holroydabout this book: As an American living in Europe, I understand how difficult it can be to learn a foreign language. This is why Sleeping Cat Books began a series of bilingual books that contain the English version on the left-hand pages and the French version on the right-hand pages. This allows the reader to translate the foreign language and refer across the page to the familiar language any time they get stuck, eliminating the need to search through a dictionary or website and risk losing their place in the story.

This volume, by Oscar Wilde, is the first in our series of English-French bilingual books. The Picture of Dorian Gray is the only novel that Wilde published, a story of vanity, debauchery, and lost morality. Dorian Gray is obsessed with his own youth and beauty, and terrified of losing it through the process of aging. After wishing that his portrait would age instead of himself, he finds that his wish has come true. As Dorian descends into a life of sin and debauchery inconsistent with Victorian values, the portrait ages and bears the evidence of this troubled life, while Dorian remains forever unchanged.
