Synopsis: The definitive Shaw, now for the general reader. 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 over just 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.

About the Author: Besides the biographies of Augustus John, Bernard Shaw and Lytton Strachey (which was filmed as Carrington), MICHAEL HOLROYD has written two volumes of memoirs, Basil Street Blues and Mosaic. He is the current president of the Royal Society of Literature and the only non-fiction writer to have been awarded the British Literature Prize. He lives in London and Somerset with his wife, the novelist Margaret Drabble.

Book Description Pimlico, 2011. Condition: New. Commissioned by the Shaw Estate and originally published in four volumes between 1988 and 1992, Michael Holroyd's definitive biography of George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) has been edited and revised by the author to present this fast-paced single-volume life of its much larger-than-life subject. Setting out to demythologize Shaw without reducing his stature, Holroyd uncovers the private and vulnerable aspects of the playwright that were hidden behind his 'dazzling panache'.
