Chilly this morning, but the clear skies with only slight whisps of cloud promise another hot day.
"Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you've got to say, and say it hot."
It just has to be... DH Lawrence (1885-1930), English writer, whom EM Forster hailed as "the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation", and whose most (in)famous themes included sexuality, homosexuality, emotional spontaneity and human instinct. HIs most famous novel, Lady Chatterley's Lover, was banned on publication in 1928, but was published in Italy and in France. In 1960 it was finally published (by Penguin) in the UK, following a 6-day trial for obscenity, and the first run of 200,000 copies was sold out within the week amid scenes of bedlam in bookshops.
These days we're so jaded that only children's books elicit such a response from the reading public.
