7 of the best Lawrence stories, each turning on some facet of sexual feeling, attitude or convention. "The Prussian Officer" focuses on an aristocratic captain's homoerotic obsession for his young orderly. "The Shadow in the Rose Garden" and "The White Stocking" deal with sexual jealousy. "Daughters of the Vicar" brilliantly describes two exceedingly class-conscious mating rituals. "The Christening," "Second Best" and "Odour of Chrysanthemums" etch memorable portraits of a family's shame at an illegitimate birth, a country courtship and a brutish marriage abbreviated by death.
