Oscar Wilde was a popular literary figure in the late 1800s. Late in his life, the Irish poet and playwright was convicted of gross indecency and sentenced to two years hard labor. What happened once he was released is the focus of John Vanderslice’s new novel, “The Last Days of Oscar Wilde.” The work is being released by Burlesque Press Jan. 15.
