English and Creative Writing academic Andrew Meehan appeared on BBC Radio Scotland's Afternoon Show to discuss the publication of his latest novel, The Mystery of Love, a witty re-imagining of the relationship between Oscar and Constance Wilde. The book was released on February 6th and has already been receiving some very impressive newspaper reviews.
The Mystery of Love, Andrew's second novel, is a fictional account of the marriage of Oscar and Constance Wilde and was published by Head of Zeus Books.
In their review of the novel, The Independent wrote: "It would take an audacious writer not just to put words into the mouth of Ireland's best-known wit, but also to reimagine the relationship between Oscar Wilde and his wife Constance. Andrew Meehan has already proved himself a brilliantly inventive writer with his 2017 debut, One Star Awake. [...] The story of Oscar and Constance has long been compelling: under Meehan's astute eye, even more so. Yet even if The Mystery of Love wasn't written about these two enchanting figures, it's a wonderful read in its own right."
