Read my senior year of high school when I worked on a semester-long project researching Lawrence's life and writing a paper about this autobiographical novel. Lawrence blew my mind in those days and forever earned a spot among my most beloved authors. Lady Chatterley's Lover
will always be my favorite of his books, but I had a particular appreciation for this one because he dug deep into his own life and his relationship with his mother and his spurned first love to write it, and didn't paint an altogether favorable portrayal of himself. I really must re-read this.
