Read full description of the books:
This is a great book about being prevented from doing the thing you most want to do, the thing you're totally psyched about and can't wait to do, by yourself. Geoff Dyer wants to write a searing soul-wrenching book about DH Lawrence (guru, priest, prophet, you know) and Out of Sheer Rage is an account of how he didn't do it. Because his life got in the way, and his brain and heart got in the way, his girlfriend got in the way, the cat, the neighbour's rabbit, hamsters got in the way
but mainly his terrible neuroses - they really got in the way. So here is a guy I can completely empathise with because my entire life has been quite like that, except without any hamsters.
Strangely enough the partner of a friend of mine also tried to write a book about DH Lawrence for some years and that never happened either. Everyone kept telling him about Out of Sheer Rage and he kept deliberately not reading it, because although Geoff didn't write his book, he did write a great book about not writing it, which my friend's partner didn't - because the idea never occurred to him and because if it had he would have dimissed it as indulgent silliness - so that was a cruel treble whammy, Geoff Dyer stole his idea then failed like him to do it, but then rescued the situation by writing a side-splitting journal of heroic failure.
Pure treacle tart.
