The Kindness of Oscar and Thomas

I was delighted to be named a finalist in the Biostories Essay Contest. The theme was kindness and I wrote The Kindness of Oscar and Thomas, which deals with Oscar Wilde’s time in Reading Jail. I think the winning entry, The Old Spiral Highway by Liz Olds, is lovely. The other finalist, Julie Goodale has written Escape, a very powerful and evocative piece. Both are well worth reading.
