Last month, LitHub posted an article about SP Books' upcoming reprint of the original, unedited manuscript of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. This edition is very expensive, but it offers an interesting look at what Wilde and his publishers deemed too homoerotic for the era (although LitHub points out that the edited manuscript still raised eyebrows—one of Wilde's critics wrote that it was “written ‘for outlawed noblemen and perverted telegraph boys.')
