Groggy Returns

I'm back from a seven-month hiatus with a new crop of Lawrence bios. Time permitting (my job doesn't allow for the time required for a good, well-thought-out analysis) I will have reviews of two more Lawrence bios up soon: Vyvyan Richards' Portrait of T.E. Lawrence and Lawrence James' The Golden Warrior: The Life and Legend of Lawrence of Arabia. These will be the first two books not covered in Images of Lawrence, the book which inspired this blog in the first place, so I hope I can do them justice.

In the meantime, there are at least two new Lawrence biographies just released: James Schneider's Guerilla Leader: T.E. Lawrence and the Arab Revolt, which appears to be an analysis of Lawrene's military leadership, and Joseph Berton's T.E. Lawrence and the Arab Revolt: An Illustrated Guide. Also Jeremy Wilson appears to be preparing a new edition of his authorized biography.

One of the benefits of being a Lawrence enthusiast is there's never a shortage of reading material. Keep an eye on this blog for more updates.
