This account of Lawrence's last years - his tempestuous relationship with Frieda and his almost continuous travels between New Mexico, Europe, and England - brings the great writer to life in detail. Lawrence relished his workingman's aptitude, but what sustained him was his writing. He wrote "Lady Chatterley's Lover" and broke the taboo against explicit sex in literature. In poetry, novellas, travel writing, and the painting of visceral canvases, he continued to respond to the demands of his art. And, to the end, he clung to his wife, the fundamentally married man he had always been.
