DAVID HERBERT RICHARDS "D. H." LAWRENCE (Born on 11 September 1885 – died on 2 March 1930) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter. His collected works represent, among other things, an extended reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization. Some of the issues Lawrence explores are emotional health, vitality, spontaneity and instinct. Lawrence's opinions earned him many enemies and he endured official persecution, censorship, and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout the second half of his life, much of which he spent in a voluntary exile which he called his "savage pilgrimage". At the time of his death, his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents. E. M. Forster, in an obituary notice, challenged this widely held view, describing him as, "The greatest imaginative novelist of our generation." Later, the Cambridge critic F. R. Leavis championed both his artistic integrity and his moral seriousness, placing much of Lawrence's fiction within the canonical "great tradition" of the English novel.

I read this book cover to cover on a flight from NYC to Dublin. It runs the gauntlet of emotions (not one to be read in public if you have a problem with a plane-load of folk hearing you sob and giggle). Its a hugely enjoyable, thoughtful book which will appeal especially to anyone who has irrepressible elderly relatives or has experienced an Irish childhood.
This is one of the densest books I have read in my short time here on Earth. So much information is packed into it, I read it slowly and highlighted about half of it! Its setting is a very specific time and place in Javanese history, right after the fall of Suharto, who had been an overbearing father-president for over thirty years, amidst a rash of mob killings and accusations of witchcraft in the wake of the post-Suharto void of power. It goes deeply into the nature of these accusations and lays out the very complicated logic behind them. It is sensitive and inquisitive, and a good, hard read.
