Summary
This book, first published in 1951, is a Postscript to Bernard Shaw: His Life and Personality-Hesketh Pearson's biography of Bernard Shaw, published in 1942, which became the standard work on Bernard Shaw. It was unique among other books on the same subject because Shaw himself gave every possible help to his biographer, allowing him to quote whatever he wished from published and unpublished correspondence. Shaw answered every question put to him and willingly revealed a great deal of information about his own life that had not been available hitherto. G.B.S. A Postscript continues the story from the point at which the biography left off. It describes the intimate discussions and not infrequent but always friendly disagreements which took place while it was bring written. Hesketh Pearson was in constant touch with Shaw throughout the last decade of his life, and, with Shaw's knowledge, kept the biography up to date, noting down immediately after their occurrence accounts of their many discussions. Shaw subsequently recalled many things about his past which had previously escaped him, and so many fresh sidelights on Shaw and his contemporaries are included here. Not the least illuminating feature of this book is the obituary which Shaw himself contributed
