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 227 WorldCat member 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

Rassemblement en un volume des oeuvres majeures d'un auteur surtout connu comme romancier (##Au-dessous du volcan##). Mais les perspectives risquent de changer, puisque le préfacier affirme: "Au commencement chez Lowry il y a le poème" (cf. p. 7-9), ce qui fait écho au "je ne pense qu'à la poésie" de Lowry. Choix de poèmes, p. 979-1025. Choix de lettres, p. 1053-1073. Notice pour chaque oeuvre présentée. Bon appareil critique de plus de cinquante pages (avant-propos, témoignage, étude). Ne manquent au volume que quelques nouvelles et le roman inachevé ##En route vers l'île de Gabriola##. [SDM]
