Stories and novellas by a master of twentieth-century fictionFor fans of the novel Under the Volcano, this collection of stories-many of them published for the first time posthumously-provides great insight into the author's genius. The stories range from heartfelt tragedy to exuberant triumph. In the novella "Through the Panama," a burned-out, alcoholic writer tries to make sense of the literature that has kept him afloat while the pulse of his life grows harder to distinguish. In "The Forest Path to Spring," a couple that has survived hell finds new life in the seclusion of a vast forest. And in "The Bravest Boat," a young boy sends a message across the ocean to an unknown recipient. Together, these stories reveal a writer who traveled widely, observed keenly, and maintained an engrossing literary style that still reverberates today

Paradise proves fleeting in this engrossing tale of a married couple who tries to chase away the past by immersing themselves in natureEdited by Malcolm Lowry's widow and released more than a decade after his death, October Ferry to Gabriola is the sentimental story of two individuals striving for sanity, inspiration, hope, and purpose in the deep seclusion of the British Columbian forest. Once the couple finds a new home in the woods, their new, off-the-grid life together becomes their last attempt at finding stability ... Illuminating and joyful, October Ferry to Gabriola is a striking ode to the struggle for hope amid the purity of the wilderness-a story made all the more poignant by Lowry's untimely death before publication

Malcolm Lowry's "La mordida" by Malcolm Lowry( Book )
9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 229 libraries worldwide
Although Malcolm Lowry (1909-1957) published only two novels - Ultramarine and Under the Volcano - in his lifetime, numerous other works, most of which have since been edited for publication, were in various stages of composition at his death. La Mordida, the longest and most significant of the manuscripts that have not been previously published, is a draft of a novel based on Lowry's visit to Mexico in 1945-46, which ended in the arrest and deportation of Lowry and his wife following a nightmarish run-in with corrupt immigration authorities. On its most immediate level, the title La Mordida - which means "the little bite," Mexican slang for the small bribe that officials are apt to demand in order to expedite matters - refers to the autobiographical protagonist's legal difficulties. In a larger sense, however, it also represents his inability to escape his past, to repay the fine, or debt, that he owes. The central narrative of La Mordida involves a descent into the abyss of self, culminating in the protagonist's symbolic rebirth at the book's end. Lowry planned to use this basic narrative pattern as the springboard for innumerable questions about such concerns as art, identity, the nature of existence, political issues, and alcoholism. Above all, La Mordida was to have been a metafictional work about an author who sees no point in living events if he cannot write about them, and who not only is unable to write but also suspects that he is just a character in a novel

The voyage that never ends : Malcolm Lowry's fiction by Sherrill Grace( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
A portrait in his own words of one of the twentieth-century's most original and tragic writers, The Voyage that Never Ends is the first collection to draw on the whole range of Malcolm Lowry's work above and beyond his masterpiece Under the Volcano. When Lowry died at the age of 48--in the coroner's words, "of misadventure"--He left a great deal of extraordinary work that had remained uncollected or unpublished in the course of a life driven equally by a passion for writing and addiction to alcohol--stories, novellas, half-finished novels, including significant portions of the long-contemplated epic tale of suffering and redemption that was to follow Under the Volcano's unsparing account of a modern hell. This material, scattered among various volumes, some of them scholarly editions of limited availability and many of them out of print for years, is here drawn on by the British poet and critic Michael Hofmann to present an unequalled picture of Lowry's range and achievement. Including the idyllic story "The Forest Path to the Spring," the brilliantly experimental "Through the Panama," and augmented by Lowry's letters and poems, The Voyage that Never Ends introduces readers to a new Malcolm Lowry, a great and doomed writer who, like Jack Kerouac and Sylvia Plath, staked everything on his art
