Why used he express so much pleasure in physically resembling his father whom he neither liked nor admired? The answer lies in the menage a trois, consisting of his parents and a strange singing teacher named George Vandeleur Lee, in which Shaw was brought up in his native Dublin.' [wrapper blurb].
