If you’ve ever wondered about the author of Lady Chatterley’s Lover and want to know more about DH Lawrence and his life, this fictionalized account is right up your alley. Its not fast-paced, but there’s so much detail about the storm this book caused in England. Author, Alison McLeod, turns to Lawrence’s autobiography for the details about his indecency trial.
