With a vivd description, David Herbert Lawrence plunges into the corners, 'the black, industrial countryside', and 'long ugly villages' of the 1919 industrial England (right after the end of World War I).

This story was good, I think. I guess it must have been wierd being a young man working in England during the Great War. 90% of the men were away on the continent fighting, and all this man's co-workers were women. He was no saint, but those women... Guess he should have seen it coming from a mile away. Quick, violent, and to-the-point.
