An Unsocial Socialist

by George Bernard Shaw
£9.99   paperback  John Murray Publishers Ltd (2012)

An Unsocial Socialist by George Bernard Shaw Witty, exuberant and irresistibly entertaining, Shaw's fifth and most ambitious novel is a brilliant satire on social prejudice.
 
Sidney Trefusis is a proselytizing socialist. Armed with irony and paradox, he is determined to overthrow a society riddled with class and sexual exploitation.
 
Henrietta, his adoring wife, 'loves' him: he must abandon her. Son of a millionaire, he gives up everything to pose as an 'umble peasant'. But when this unsocial socialist goes to work as a gardener in the vicinity of a girls' school, he meets his match - for Agatha Wylie is a new kind of woman, perfectly armed: and she doesn't love him.
 
With the character of his clown-prophet Trefusis, George Bernard Shaw presented for the first time his view of what the relationship between the sexes should be. Galloping, exuberant, and irresistibly entertaining, An Unsocial Socialist is a brilliant satire on social prejudice from a great author of the past.
