A Reclusive Novelist Reckons With His Legacy '& Sons'
Fresh Air, Tuesday, July 23, 2013 at 0am
At the center of David Gilbert's new novel & Sons is a famous and famously reclusive writer in the J.D. Salinger model. It's a book about the writer as author of books, and as the father of sons — sons who don't feel nearly as warmly toward him as readers do.

Short biography
D. H. Lawrence had unconventional opinions, especially about sexuality, and at the time of his death of tuberculosis he was thought of mainly as a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents. But E. M. Forster, in an obituary notice, described him as “the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation.” Later critics concurred, and Lawrence is now remembered as an important modernist intellectual.
