Reviews

"He's an intoxicator, a very great writer. . . . The short stories are among the best in the language. I re-read Sons and Lovers and The Rainbow recently and thought them wonderful. . . . Has there ever been anyone like him for bringing places and people so vividly to life?"  —Doris Lessing

"Lawrence's masterpiece . . . a revelation."  —Anthony Burgess
