A wealthy gentleman disguises himself as a vulgar workingman to hide from his wife. Not only is she too affectionate, but he needs the freedom to promote socialism. The second of Shaw’s five novels, written in 1883 and published in 1887, also involves comic antics at an all-girl’s school.

Satirical tale of nineteeth century British style full of witty banter. Slow in some parts but still amusing and thought provoking.
