The voyage that never ends : fictions, poems, fragments, letters by Malcolm Lowry ( Book )
10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 421 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the coroner's words, "of misadventure"--He left a great deal of extraordinary work that had remained uncollected or unpublished in the course of a life driven equally by a passion for writing and addiction to alcohol--stories, novellas, half-finished novels, including significant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.

Malcolm Lowry, author of Under the Volcano and one of the most celebrated English novelists of this century, was also a writer of superb letters. Collected here for the first time are close to 800 letters spanning more than thirty years, most of them never before published and all of them carefully annotated. Lowry's letters range from his detailed, erudite, 35-page-long exegesis of his masterpiece to impassioned letters and notes to his wives. They include witty, ironic self-parodies, letters to younger writers, full of generous advice and literary discussion, and letters with analysis and acute insight into politics and current affairs. Lowry frequently illustrated his letters with drawings, marginal sketches and symbols of good cheer such as his seagulls which adorn many of the later letters.

Malcolm Lowry's "La mordida by Malcolm Lowry ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 211 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.
