On the Rocks by Amy Rosenthal


A modern comedy, from the author of Sitting Pretty, about one of Nottinghamshire's famous writers.

In Spring 1916 D H Lawrence and his wife Frieda have found a new life for themselves in the remote Cornish village of Zennor. He is starting on his new novel - Women in Love. Rejuvenated by the wild beauty around them, they persuade close friends Katherine Mansfield and John Middleton Murry to join them in their idyll. But no sooner have Katherine and Jack arrived than long-simmering tensions bubble to the surface, and Lawrence's dream of communal living starts unravelling before his eyes. His new work seems to be coming to life amongst them. To make matters worse the locals are convinced that Frieda is a German spy.

Based on true events, this is the story of women, and men, in love. An uplifting and passionate comedy about four friends trying to live together, two marriages struggling for survival and a group of writers striving for creativity in the midst of war.
