    1. I gave up. Aping D.H. Lawrence seems like a bad plan. His writing is precarious enough when it's him writing it. Someone else "doing" Lawrence is kind of insufferable.

    2. I couldn't fall in love with any of the characters in this book, though the portrayal of New Mexico in the 1920's and 1960's was interesting. Just OK for me

    3. A mostly interesting story of a group of radicals that leave London shortly after WWI and emigrate to New Mexico, told in flashes by one member.
