Guernsey with Victor Hugo and Oscar Wilde

Funny how curiosity can lead you into tangents. Both Victor Hugo and Oscar Wilde are mentioned in the Shaffer and Barrows book (The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society) that I just re-read on my computer –– and will probably read again.

Victor Hugo wrote Les Miserables while living on the Channel Islands – “…little pieces of France cast into the sea and picked up by England…”   Oscar Wilde’s quotes on just about everything are all over the web, and now you can read The Picture of Dorian Gray, his short stories, plays (and one poem) online. http://www.literaturepage.com/authors/Oscar-Wilde.html

Whenever I read The Importance of Being Earnest, I see Rupert Everett (movie version). I think he may be Wilde reincarnated (another tangent).
