Overview

Bernard Shaw by Michael Holroyd

Holroyd has done a masterly job of cutting down his huge biography to a lively and manageable one-volume life -- the definitive Shaw for the general reader and the student. It has verve and pace, the light and shade of his life are emphasized, digressions cut, and Shaw comes overjust as much larger than life as he always was, just as contrary, and even more sympathetically and movingly portrayed. This is a dazzling portrait of the man and his age.
