This collection brings together five of Lawrence's short stories from 1907-13 and ranges across all his major early styles and themes. They portray his distinctive vision of relations between men and woman, as well as social and economic life and human nature in general. The stories here concentrate on the details and dramas of everyday living, yet Lawrence is able to make these familiar things seem both vivid and strange, drawing the listener into intense participation with the thoughts and emotional experiences of his characters.

David Shaw-Parker has worked in theatres throughout Britain. He has acted in many radio plays for both BBC World Service and Radio 4 and has made numerous appearances on both BBC and commercial television.

    " Very raunchy but a good read. Again there is a focus on money v happiness an money never seems to prevail, which can be said for life too. I am glad the characters find happiness, sexually, romantically and hopefully happy ever after. "

    " Very difficult read; large words I had to look up, and the book was steamy. Not exactly my favorite book of all time, but worth the read. "

    " Liked it, though I expected something more... scandalous, what with all the fuss around this book. "

    " Except for the sex I wasn't too enthralled. Of course, I was a teenaged male. Date read is a guess. "

    " Good read, but I liked Madame Bovary better. "

    " I read all of Lawrence at the Community Park Swimming pool when I was 16 years old. I loved all of his books. So sensual, but I was so young I should reread. So many books and so little time. "

    " It was ok, but not that racy!!! It took me a while to get to grips with it. The 'sex' thats in it is brief and hard to find. "

About the Author

David Herbert Lawrence (1885–1930), novelist, short-story writer, poet, critic, playwright, and essayist, was one of the most important and controversial figures of twentieth-century English literature. His works confront the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization and are notable for their passionate intensity and for a sensuality that centers on the erotic. Though his opinions earned him enemies, persecution, and censorship during his lifetime, he is now recognized as an artistic visionary.
