A NEW YORK REVIEW BOOKS ORIGINAL Notorious for a misspent life full of binges, blackouts, and unimaginable bad luck, Malcolm Lowry managed, against every odd, to complete and publish two novels, one of them, Under the Volcano , an indisputable masterpiece. At the time of his death in 1957, Lowry also left behind a great deal of uncollected and unpublished writing: stories, novellas, drafts of novels and revisions of drafts of novels (Lowry was a tireless...

The Mother Lode of Lowry's incredible writing!

This is by far the best collection of work by one of the greatest although sadly lesser known writers of the 20th Century. Lowry, British by birth, lived for years in Mexico and Canada, and because of his drinking his published work is a fraction of his prolific writing. This book contains a treasure chest of his lesser known work, unfinished novels, stories, letters. He is best known for his masterpiece "Under the Volcano." I read "Volcano" over 30 years ago when I was still drinking, and nothing, not even Bukowski (certainly no offense to Bukowski, a genius as well) hit me as hard as Lowry and I have always wished I could get my hands on more of his work. My wish has been granted in this definitive tome. This is the Mother Lode for Lowry fans, and anyone who appreciates truly great literature. Lowry, although at times a bit dense in language and style, is more than worth a bit of extra effort on the reader's part. His writing is impeccable, the imagery, the passion, the pain, the insights, the evocative precision of inner and outer landscapes are stunning! This book, especially in his letters, offers the reader a greater sense of the man behind the myth that has grown around a brilliant writer, who happened to be an alcoholic. Reading him at this point in my life, more than 32 years sober, I see his work in a different light and have gained a much deeper appreciation and understanding of Lowry the man, and the writer. This book is a classic; evidence of the true genius of Malcolm Lowry.- Michael Clark Lorenzo. Accidents of Birth
