Love Among the Haystacks and Other Stories Audiobook

Written by : D H Lawrence
Read by: Geraldine James OBE

This is a selection of D H Lawrence’s short stories, mostly about women. Although much wider known for his novels and in particular for his forthright attitude to sex, and its description, in literature, it is for his short stories that Lawrence has most commonly gained critical acclaim.

Set, as was Lawrence’s habit, within sight of the ‘great blue heap of Nottingham’ Love Among the Haystacks introduces us to the character of the wild and disobedient German governess mostly referred to as ‘the Fräulein’, whose passion and rarity drive two brothers to distraction with somewhat disastrous consequences.

Mother and Daughter is portrayal of that most difficult of roles, the mother-in-law, and The Rocking Horse WinnerThe Odour of Crysanthemums explores the other side of the equation with a son’s desperate attempts to help his overly acquisitive mother creating a sharply painful, almost parable-like tale. is one of Lawrence’s most famous short stories. It marked the beginning of his literary career when it was published in 1909 in the hugely influential magazine The Literary Review.
