The Virgin and the Gypsy (Unabridged)
David Herbert Richards Lawrence
Read by Georgina Sutton
In a claustrophobic household, oppressed by her blind, toad-like grandmother and a cowardly, conventional father, Yvette's exuberance seems doomed to suppression. But meeting a gypsy awakens unfamiliar emotions in her, making her challenge the family's accepted morality. As she wavers between conformity and rebellion, a flash flood threatens her home, her world and her life. This short novel deals with all the major themes of sexuality and identity that made Lawrence one of the most original and influential writers of the 20th century; and it is a satirical, atmospheric, moving and surprising masterpiece.
