Description


"One of the most shattering and upsetting stories I have read for a long time. I certainly finished it feeling as if I had watched and earthquake.

The final irony is that Pascal's last mad idea was a musical based on PYGMALION. He broke himself--and several others--keeping up the option payments on it.

One day Pascal looked at his wife's hand and said with amazement, 'I am going to leave you with millions, ' Nothing seemed less likely. He died penniless and deep in debt.

"But the book ends with the first night of MY FAIR LADY."
--Colin Wilson
