No current Talk conversations about this book.
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. Well worth reading if you want to know more about this eloquent man and his life. ( )
“The triumphant emergence of Lady Chatterley’s Lover is given fitting tribute here; it reminds us that moments like the Chatterley trial are precious, and must be cherished and defended, because progress is never inevitable. Victories for freedom should be sung from the rooftops. That is what MacLeod has done.”
MacLeod pulls off a magnificent nonlinear spin on Lady Chatterley’s Lover and the censorship of literature During D.H Lawrence’s life and beyond.
“ ... bold, adventurous and unpredictable…. Working within the constraint of the facts (there are fifteen pages of endnotes), MacCleod allows her fictions to take root ...”
Recreates the origins of D.H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover" from its private publication by Lawrence through the 1960 obscenity trial that sought to suppress the full, uncensored edition, reimagining its journey to freedom through the story of Jackie Kennedy, who was known to be an admirer.
