Overview

The thirteen stories collected here were written between 1924 and 1928 and reflect Lawrence's experiences in New Mexico, Mexico, Italy, Germany and England during the post-war period. In 'The Woman Who Rode Away', a wife and mother leaves the safety of her Mexican home and rides into the mountains in search of a remote tribe of Indians and enlightenment. Each story reveals different aspects of Lawrence's remarkable storytelling powers, from the sensuousness of 'Sun' and the sardonic comedy of 'Two Blue Birds' and 'In Love', to the bleakness of 'None of That!' and the supernatural elements of 'Glad Ghosts', 'The Last Laugh' and 'The Border-Line'. This Penguin edition reproduces the newly established Cambridge text, which is based on Lawrence's manuscripts, typescripts and corrected proofs.
