Description

A terrifying ghost is haunting the ancient mansion of Canterville Chase, complete with creaking floorboards, clanking chains and gruesome disguises - but the new occupants seem strangely undisturbed by his presence. Deftly contrasting the conventional gothic ghost story with the pragmatism of the modern world, Wilde creates a gently comic fable of the conflict between old and new. Rupert Degas' hilarious reading brings the absurdity and theatricality of the story to life.

    What a whimsical, humorous, profound, romantic, and enchanting story. My first read of a Wilde composition, and I'm definitely going to be reading more of his literature.

    Absolutely hilarious. It's a ghost story that not only makes fun of itself but we Americans as well--and it's not at all scary. VERY fun to read.
