Unique among D. H. Lawrence’s writings, The Boy in the Bush, published in 1924, is the novel he wrote in collaboration with Mollie Skinner, a native of Western Australia, who provided the background that Lawrence’s vivid and matchless prose transformed into an exciting story of adventure and romance on the Australian frontier of the 1880s. The present edition is a reprint of the Secker 1924 London edition. In his Note on the Text Matthew J. Bruccoli discusses and gives the reasons for the selection of this text, and in his Preface Harry T. Moore places the novel in perspective in the Lawrence canon.

A study of all the extant textual documents has revealed a process of composition and revision which qualifies the novel to be treated unequivocally as part of the Lawrence canon.About the Author:
