Synopsis: First published in 1942, Hesketh Pearson's much lauded biography has been hailed as the standard work on George Bernard Shaw. Pearson was fortunate to have written it with the close cooperation of Shaw. Not only did Shaw check and correct all the facts, contribute and authenticate or reject anecdotes but he supplied what he referred to as 'unique private history' unavailable to others. The recorded conversations Shaw had with Pearson bring to life Shaw's vivacity, charisma and prominence. All aspects of Shaw's life are explored including his politics, personal life, letters, writings, contribution to English theatre and the famous personalities of his time. "REVIEW: 'an almost flawless book...This masterpiece of biography' (The Express) "REVIEW: 'My first experience of a Hesketh Pearson biography was one of the great moments of a reading career. His Shaw remains many miles in front of all the other contenders.' (Benny Green in the Spectator) "REVIEW: 'I have to pronounce this an almost flawless book, doing full justice to its subject's integrity, vitality, industry, gift of larkishness and colossal sense of human responsibility...This masterpiece of biography.' (James Agate in The Express) AUTHBIO: Hesketh Pearson was an actor before becoming a biographer. His first book, Modern Men and Manners, was published in 1921 and contained portraits of the theatre personalities of the time. His many subjects have included Gilbert and Sullivan, George Bernard Shaw, Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Dickens and Whistler. Hesketh Pearson was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
