This vintage book contains George Bernard Shaw's 1919 play, "Heartbreak House: A Fantasia in the Russian Manner on English Themes". Ellie Dunn, her father, and her fiancÃ© attend one of Hesione Hushabye's notorious dinner parties. However, Ellie's partner is a rake, her father is an idiot, and she has amorous feelings for Hesione's husband.

Many antiquarian books like this are increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern edition - complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author
