LITERARY HISTORYRichard Huggett, The Truth About Pygmalion. Originally published in 1969, this deftly written, admirably concise study of how George Bernard Shaw's most popular play made it to the stage is forgotten today save by Shaw specialists. It shouldn't be. Few such books pack more information into a smaller package, and fewer still do so with such engaging wit (TT).
