Philip Callow's outstanding account of D.H. Lawrence's last years provides a fresh insight into Lawrence's art as well as his life. Candid about the relationship between Lawrence and his wife, it shows nevertheless the strength of the bound between them. Lawrence's constant quest for renewal through sexual energy is shown against the backdrop of his failing health. If other book has persuaded the reader of Lawrence's greatness, this one does.
Philip Callow is the author of books on Whitman, Chekhov, Robert Louis Stevenson and is a novelist.
