Finished reading Out of Sheer Rage: In the Shadow of D. H. Lawrence by Geoff Dyer.

Dyer is an award-winning British writer of 11 books. He is a fan of D. H. Lawrence and wants to write a book about him. Should he write a novel or a "sober, academic study of D. H. Lawrence"? After long considerations he decides on the latter. He gathers and reads books by and about Lawrence and travels to places where Lawrence lived, from Italy to New Mexico. After all that, he fails to complete his writing project.

Out of Sheer Rage is Geoff Dyer's account of his constant procrastination, diversions and eventual failure. Some parts of this book are hilarious and other parts informative.
