Publisher Description

‘If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you.’

One of the most prolific and respected playwrights of the twentieth century, Bernard Shaw’s legacy shows no signs of waning, and his beautifully written plays, laced with wry wit and invective alike, have seen countless performances over the years, their finest lines paraded in literary conversation and review.

Meticulously selected by Simon Mundy, Wit and Acid collects the sharpest lines from the Shaw’s oeuvre in one neat volume, allowing the reader to sample some of the very best barbs and one-liners the twentieth century has to offer.

With an introduction by Simon Mundy, a poet, novelist, trenchant music critic and occasional playwright.
