    Worth reading if you have any interest at all in Wilde and his family. As a child he listened to his parents' intellectual conversation. His mother was very intelligent and his father was an ophthalmic surgeon. The family was well off but ended up penniless. Wilde was always an attention seeker and lived a very flamboyant lifestyle. He married and had two sons but latterly lived in France with his lover and died aged 46.
