HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

'There was one place in the world that stood solid and did not melt into unreality: the place where his mother was. Everybody else could grow shadowy, almost non-existent to him, but she could not.'

In his quest to find his emotional and independent self, Paul Morel is torn between the strong, Oedipal bond he has with his mother and the relationships he forges as a young adult, with chaste Miriam and the provocative Clara. As Paul matures and struggles with his own and his mother's feelings towards the other women in his life, Lawrence expertly crafts a timeless and universal story of family, love and the relationships that define us.

Review:

"He's an intoxicator, a very great writer, punished by the feminists and their ludicrous opinions. The short stories are among the best in the language. I re-read Sons and Lovers and The Rainbow recently and thought them wonderful... Has there ever been anyone like him for bringing places and people so vividly to life?" (Doris Lessing)

"Lawrence's masterly portraiture of the human impulse in his fiction had strength and depth...He tore at the rock of life with hand and implement... in Sons and Lovers he fashioned the hard substance of his place and people in memorable ways." (Guardian, March 1930)

"An affecting portrait of a mining family torn apart by class divisions and individual desire at the turn of the century" (Guardian)

"His fierce love for his mother warring with the need to follow his own desires - analysed with a vigorous relentlessness and pungent imagery - makes this a work whose power stands the test of time" (Sunday Times)

"When I was 13 or 14 this was the book I couldn't put down. It's very good teenager territory" (Jonathan Pryce Daily Express)

Book Description:

A story of love, passion and family from the author of Lady Chatterley's Lover
