Anakana Schofield – Author of Martin John and Malarky

The reread of DH Lawrence’s The Rainbow sends me back strangely to consider another read of Irene Baird’s pastoral Vancouver Island set novel John. (1937)

I think I left it too soon. Something in Lawrence’s early invocation of place in The Rainbow (1915) made me think of how Baird sets up her novel initially and now I must go back and read, the early part again to see where it sits.
