Lillie Langtry: Manners, Masks and Morals

Author(s): Laura Beatty

Biography

Mrs Langtry - born a provincial in 1853, died rich and lonely in 1929 - was surrounded by scandal, luxury and gossip. This book goes beyond these outward trappings to lift the masks that Oscar Wilde, her friend and mentor, taught her to wear. It reveals a passionate woman for whom the charge of opportunism was by no means the whole story.
