Abstract:

Geoff Dyer wanted to write a book about D. H. Lawrence. He wanted, in fact, to write his 'Lawrence book'. The problem was Dyer didn't really know what his 'Lawrence book' would be, what form it would take, or even when he'd start writing it. He set out simply to explore and record his reactions - both as a reader, and as a writer himself. But, just as Lawrence's study of Thomas Hardy ended up being 'about anything but Thomas Hardy', so Dyer's book on Lawrence soon threatened to be as much about writers like Rilke, Camus and Thomas Bernhard as Lawrence himself, and as much - no, more - about his own experiences on the Lawrence trail, in New Mexico, Sicily, and darkest Eastwood.
