Loverly: The Life and Times of My Fair Lady

Scheduled by Oxford University Press, USA, for release in the summer of 2012 is the book Loverly: The Life and Times of My Fair Lady by Dominic McHugh. "Using previously-unpublished documents, author Dominic McHugh presents a completely new, behind-the-scenes look at the five-year creation of the show, revealing the tensions and complex relationships that went into its making."

"A captivating book due to the tremendous amount of new information supplied in its exciting narrative. While My Fair Lady seems in retrospect like an inevitably perfect musical, McHugh reveals that its creation was fraught with many potential roadblocks and creative differences. A fascinating read!" --Michael Feinstein

"Dominic McHugh has written a fine authoritative study of one of the world's greatest musicals. Anyone with an interest in the detailed history of the creation of My Fair Lady must read this book."--Liz Robertson, widow of Alan Jay Lerner
