Follow Cashel Byron, a world champion prizefighter, as he tries to woo wealthy aristocrat Lydia Carew without revealing his illegal profession. The work fairly bristles with wit from beginning to end, but the utmost good sense lies at the bottom of the story.
About the Author
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) was an Irish playwright and journalist. Shaw enjoyed success both as a literary critic and playwright, but wrote several relatively unsuccessful novels early in his career. His plays, including PYGMALION, earned him considerable success. Shaw won both the Nobel Prize for Literature and an Oscar for PYGMALION, the latter for the screenplay adaptation in 1938. He remains the only person to win both awards.
