'Jimmy and the Desperate Woman' tells the improbable story of an intellectual editor persuading a working woman to live with him. We would say now 'on the rebound' from a failed marriage but Lawrence crosses the class divide and poses questions about what makes us attracted to other people. The intellectual twists and turns of the magazine editor contrast nicely with the stark honesty of the spurned miner husband.
