The playwright George Bernard Shaw threw all his immense energies into making the world a better place. At the same time he needed a refuge from celebrity. He found this at Shaw's Corner in the quiet Hertfordshire village of Ayot St Lawrence, where he could write in peace and entertain his wide circle of friends. This modest former rectory is filled with mementoes of his long life - a living shrine to the extraordinary creation that was GBS. This new guidebook traces Shaw's unhappy early life in Ireland, his breakthrough to success in the 1890s, and his move to Shaw's Corner in 1906. Illustrated with many of Shaw's own atmospheric photographs, the guide follows in his footsteps around the house and garden that became his beloved home.
