About the Author:

D.H. Lawrence (1885–1930) was as a pioneer of English modernism and is best known for his novels Lady Chatterley's Lover, Sons and Lovers, and Women in Love. Rachel Cusk is the author of Arlington Park, for which she was shortlisted for the Orange Prize; The Country Life, for which she won the Somerset Maugham Award; The Last Supper; and Saving Agnes, for which she won the Whitbread First Novel Award.

Review:

"What astonished me reading it this time round is the iconoclastic modernity of the novel? the sense of daring experiment . . . When this is combined with sexual overtness and a revolutionary call for the individual to achieve "Me-ness" in opposition to the nation, industry and war, we have a book that, appearing as it did in 1915, seemed genuinely disturbing."  —Guardian
