D. H. Lawrence: The Life of an Outsider
This Seductive and Engaging Biography offers a bold reappraisal of a man who was deeply uncomfortable in his own skin. Lawrence's fascination with the body and his determination to articulate its every experience brought about his notorious reputation, and ultimately, his literary redemption. What emerges in John Worthen's portrait is an intimate and absolutely compelling study of an individual in angry revolt against his class, culture, and country--a man passionately struggling to live in accordance with his beliefs.
