Author(s): Geoff Dyer
Dyer was a talented young writer and determined to write a study of D.H.Lawrence. But when he sat down to write the book, he found himself distracted by ...everything! Welcome to the world of Dyer! Gripped by indecision at every turn, he agonises over where to settle down to write, whether or not he should move in with his almost-girlfriend, and even which edition of Lawrence's poems to pack in his rucksack. In Out of Sheer Rage Dyer travels the world, providing fascinating insights into Lawrence's life and the continuing value of his work - and into the myriad anxieties that define the life of a writer.
