Bernard Shaw: 1856-1898, The search for love
[V.1]. "He was "Sonny," the unloved child who grew up in a ménage-à-trois. He was "G.B.S.," the public eccentric and relentlessly articulate playwright, critic, and socialist pamphleteer who presented himself as a great man long before he had achieved greatness. He was Bernard Shaw (he detested the name "George"), the complex and evasive man who invaded other people's marriages and conducted romances by mail but didn't marry until his forties. Fifteen years in the writing and deftly marshaling an enormous body of research, Bernard Shaw : The Search for Love captures the early life of this brilliant and multifarious man of ideas with humor, compassion, and startling acuity."--Cover.
