Lawrence startled and captivated audiences over half a century ago. In its exploration of the boundary between the privileged life and the laws of the heart, The Trespassers offers an intriguing look at contemporary society and creates a powerful vision of erotic love. Catherine Mansure lives a leisured life on her husbands vast property in the California mountains while her husband, Rick, once a legendary figure at Berkeley, supervises his familys corporation. Rick develops a debilitating illness and distances himself from a marriage that has already lost its way. When Catherines acquaintance with Henry Bascomb, a musician who makes his living growing marijuana on Mansure land, turns unexpectedly into a love affair, she must weigh her love against the comforts of her social standing, the scandal of a divorce, and even the love of her son. With its lush, masterly prose, The Trespassers is a powerful novel as unsettling as it is deeply moving. Robert Ropers talent, hailed in the reviews of his earlier books, is evident here in this brilliant retelling of one of the great masterpieces of twentieth-century literature.
