"Ultramarine is the story of Dana Hilliot's first voyage, as mess-boy on the freighter Oedipus Tyrannus bound for Bombay and Singapore: of his struggle to win the approval of his shipmates, trying to match their example in the bars and bordellos of the Chinese ports while at the same time remaining faithful to his first love, Janet, back home in England. Alternating between Dana's own narrative and the ribald humor and colorful language of the sailors' conversation, Ultramarine depicts a boy's initiation into the company of men."--BOOK JACKET
Dark as the grave wherein my friend is laid by Malcolm Lowry( Book )

100 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 1,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A fictionalized account of a somewhat disastrous vacation Malcolm Lowry and his wife took to Mexico in order to relive a previous Mexican vacation which also proved disastrous. Although the basic premise is clear- the narrator and his wife flee to Mexico in order to escape any number of legal and marital problems- once in Mexico, the book focuses on the spiritual and moral struggles of its main character, who is essentially Lowry himself. Dragging his wife from town to town, riding overcrowded buses and staying in less than ideal lodgings, the narrator relives his past mistakes, wrestles with regret, and finally reaches a place, both physically and spiritually, where he is able to confront his demons head on and leave both the literal and figurative Mexico."--Amazon

Edited 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.

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
