Aaron's Rod

by D.H. Lawrence

Aaron Sisson, union official in the coal mines of the English Midlands, is trapped in a stale marriage. He is also a talented amateur flautist, and after walking out on his wife and two children Aaron impusively decides to visit Italy to pursue his dream of becoming a professional musician. During his travels he encounters and befriends Rawdon Lilly, a Lawrence-like writer who nurses Aaron back to health when he is taken ill in post-war London. Recovering his health, Aaron travels to Florence where he moves in intellectual and artistic circles, arguing politics, leadership, and submission, and begins an affair with an aristocratic lady.

Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
