Out of Sheer Rage: Wrestling with D H Lawrence

Out of Sheer Rage: Wrestling with D H Lawrence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sitting down to write a book on his hero D.H. Lawrence, the author becomes sidetracked continuously, resulting in this book - an account of his violent distaste for seafood, drug-induced erotic fantasies on a nudist beach in Mexico, and much more. A wry and comic study of the literary world and the pitfalls of writing. "If there was a prize for the year's funniest book then it would win hands down" "Independent On Sunday".

Synopsis:

When he became interested in literature at grammar school, it was D.H. Lawrence who fired Geoff Dyer's imagination and provided the inspiration for him to become a writer. In this work, Dyer retraces Lawrence's journeys, learning much about both Lawrence and matters close to his own heart.

Jill Hummelstein, January 2, 2010 (view all comments by Jill Hummelstein)
Every writer suffers from the intense anxiety of writing. Dyer solves the problem by ripping off the master, not D.H.Lawrence in this case but Thomas Bernhard. He borrows subject matter, structure and most fruitfully Bernhard's syntax and logic to create a unique text of his own. Hilarious rendition of the writing process.
