Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This little-known memoir, originally the introduction to Magnus's Memoirs of the Foreign Legion , recounts Lawrence's short, tangled relationship with this obscure writer. The essay touched off a literary controversy between Lawrence and Norman Douglas, who felt Lawrence's account was inaccurate and mean-spirited. Cushman's edition includes Douglas's response, Lawrence's counterresponse, and excerpts from Magnus's book. The edition contains crucial passages on homosexualtiy previously unpublished in the original Memoir and brilliant character sketches and descriptive passages by Lawrence. For academic libraries.Donald P. Kaczvinsky, Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park
