In 1960 Penguin Books were prosecuted when they tried to publish Lady Chatterley's "Lover" unexpurgated for the first time. What followed was the most talked-about obscenity trial of the twentieth century, which resulted in a 'not guilty' verdict. Penguin's successful defence of the book's literary merit was a victory of free speech, and made Lawrence's story of the affair between a married woman and her gamekeeper an instant bestseller. This special edition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first UK publication of D.H. Lawrence's unexpurgated novel in 1960 and the most talked-about obscenity trial of the twentieth century. It includes afterwords by Geoffrey Robertson QC, about the legal case that changed Britain, and Steve Hare, revealing the story behind Penguin's decision to publish, as well as a detailed timeline and never-before-published letters and documents relating to the trial.

“The best book I have ever read...”

If you have not read Lady Chatterley's Lover, the simple truth is that you need to. Although the book is deeply rooted in its time, the roaring twenties, the frustrations of the society that Lawrence describes... More

“Interesting read...”

The novel lives up to the name it has gained for itself, a very engaging read that I would recommend for generations to come for an insight into class, gender and lust I guess, ha.

“Put it on your must read list.”

I brought this book for my son and ended up reading it myself. It reads like a people's history with an insight into class boundaries and social behaviour. You can see why it made a stir at the time. A really...
