A terrifying ghost is haunting the ancient mansion of Canterville Chase, complete with creaking floorboards, clanking chains and gruesome disguises  - but the new occupants seem strangely undisturbed by his presence. Deftly contrasting the conventional gothic ghost story with the pragmatism of the modern world, Wilde creates a gently comic fable of the conflict between old and new. Rupert Degas's hilarious reading brings the absurdity and theatricality of the story to life. Download and start listening now!

    " This is one of the best ghost stories I've ever read. Very clever, very funny, great insight onto US culture. "

    " The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde is a short, fun read. Even though it is about a really horrible old ghost, and the family he tries to haunt is ridiculous, I felt some affection for most of the characters, which made a refreshing change from some of the darker books and stories I've read lately. I recommend it. "
