�A Fly in the Ointment� was written by D H Lawrence in 1908. It was the fourth of his sixty-seven short stories, all of which will be published individually in ebook format by the Blackthorn Press. The story is set in lodgings in Croydon and the incident may be autobiographical but the story is full of yearning for the life and loves he left behind in Nottinghamshire.
