A new examination of the life of "Lawrence of Arabia" - T. E. Lawrence and particularly his fatal motorcycle accident in 1935
In T. E. Lawrence: Tormented Hero, Andrew Norman sheds new light on Lawrence of Arabia, who remains a mystery to this day. Lawrence's sexual orientation is discussed in detail, including his dislike of physical relationships, and it is suggested that he suffered from sexual aversion disorder. Evidence that he was beaten on several occasions, at his ownrequest, comes from several sources and appears to be irrefutable. New light is shed on his fatal motorcycle crash in May 1935, and evidence is presented showing that it occurred in a different location and manner to that which is generally supposed. Photographs taken at the time are compared with the present day topography of the site to support this entirely new theory. Other aspects of his life which are discussed, include his relationship with his parents, notably his problematical relationship with his mother Sarah; his role in the Arab Revolt and subsequent disillusionment; his friendship with some of the literati of the day including E. M.Forster, George Bernard Shaw, and Robert Graves; his love for and veneration of Thomas Hardy; how Shaw's wife Charlotte, became his confidante; and how he took Lady Astor pillion riding on his motorcycle.
