No one ever wrote better about the power struggles of sex and love" -- Doris Lessing "A masterpiece" Guardian "Does for D H Lawrence what Jack the Ripper did for Gladstone bags and stovepipe hats" -- Neil Gaiman "He was a big influence on me - I loved the seriousness and intensity he brought to his studies of human relationships, and the boldness with which he pushed the boundaries of what could be said and thought and written about in the novel" -- Andrew Davies
