    One thought on “The Politics of Pleasure: A Portrait of Benjamin Disraeli”

    1. An interest biography on Disraeli which plainly paints the most famous victorian PM as an inspiration for Oscar Wilde, with his love of turkish baths, dressing up and constant love of all things greek Fun to read Perhaps the non too subltle hinting that the PM was homosexual constant made the book drag on by a hundred pages Worth reading.
