Bernard Shaw V 2: The Pursuit of Power (1898-1918)

Michael Holroyd, Author, LuAnn Walther, Editor Vintage Books USA $16 (3p) ISBN 978-0-679-73132-0
This massive biography, arranged thematically rather than chronologically, discusses Shaw's mariage blanc ; his love affairs via correspondence; the composition and popularity of his plays, including The Doctor's Dilemma and Pygmalion ; and his battles with censorship. ``Contrasted to Shaw's sparkling, energetic style, Holroyd's own contribution seems disappointingly pedestrian,'' said PW.
