December 5th, 2014

Episode 41 of 146 episodes

The portrait must be hidden from all prying eyes – that is abundantly clear to Dorian Gray. But when Basil Hallward desires to see and exhibit the painting, Dorian must finagle a plausible and desperate excuse for hiding the artist’s best work from the world. Oscar Wilde, today on The Classic Tales Podcast. Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening. It is with great pleasure that I would like to announce the next title to be produced: The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas. This book is so long, it will be released in three parts, each around 15-17 hours in length. Presales will begin next week, so keep an eye on thebestaudiobooks.com for special presales pricing. If it weren’t for the contributions of the Classic Tales Podcast financial supporters, The Count of Monte Cristo, because of its prodigious length, could not be produced. Now, thanks to you, it can. Please consider becoming a financial supporter. The cost is only $5 a month, and we give you back a coupon code for $6 a month. With your financial help, I can not only continue to produce the weekly podcast, but also continue to release a healthy stream of unabridged classic audiobooks. Thank you for your support. And now, The Picture of Dorian Gray, part 5of8, by Oscar Wilde. App users: Check your special features for A Christmas Carol, part 2 of 4, by Charles Dickens.
