Available in Stock
TE Lawrence (1888-1935) was one of the most enigmatic figures of the 20th century, and his exploits are the stuff of legend. But what were the experiences that shaped him? This biography is the first to focus on the shy young archaeologist beguiled by the Orient. Drawing on letters, diaries and the accounts of friends, it uncovers the story Lawrence suppressed: the truth about his birth, his dominant mother, his affection for an Arab boy, and the reasons he became a spy.
