“Geoff Dibb digs deep into ground over which Oscar’s biographers have so far merely skated. His tireless researches have produced a treasure trove of lecture extracts, contemporary press reports and ephemera that shine significant new light on a formative period in Wilde’s life and literary development.” ~ JONATHAN FRYER, Writer and Broadcaster

OSCAR WILDE, A VAGABOND WITH A MISSION is the first comprehensive study of Wilde’s lecture tours of Great Britain and Ireland between 1883 and 1889. Using letters, memoirs, biographies, previously unpublished information and thousands of contemporary newspaper accounts, Geoff Dibb gives us a portrait of Wilde which we have never seen before.
