The Independent Culture
Latest in a brilliant series of little books that lets you feel like an expert on anyone from Dorothy Parker to Buddha. Shaw couldn't open his mouth without letting drop an aphorism, and all the goodies are here: 'Do not do unto others as you would that they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same'; 'All great Art and Literature is propaganda'; and, of course, the one about the drama critic leaving no turn unstoned. Read, learn and bore your friends to death.
