Most widely held works by Chris Ackerley
A companion to Under the volcano by Chris Ackerley( Book )

18 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An item-by-item discussion of the innumerable, often obscure details of Malcolm Lowry's novel, this book comprises 1,600 notes covering some 7,000 specific points. The notes are keyed to page numbers in the Penguin paperback and the two standard hardback editions. The appendices include a glossary, bibliography, maps of the region, and an index of motifs. In their comprehensive but unpedantic commentary on the novel's complexities, the authors' emphasis is on the narrative level. All points of obscurity are followed by an interpretation of fact. Thus references are noted to films, books, places, foreign languages, and national and tribal histories. Special attention is given to the literary, mystical, and Mexican background

The Grove Companion to Samuel Beckett provides a wealth of information for students and scholars alike, and is a must for any serious reader of Beckett."--Jacket
Demented particulars : the annotated Murphy by Chris Ackerley( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Obscure Locks, Simple Keys is a comprehensive study of Samuel Beckett's most enigmatic text, Watt. Chris Ackerley's approach, which is similar to genetic editing, extensively reads the novel's different editions and manuscripts (including the French translation, overseen by Beckett himself), and his long introduction engages with the complex history of the book's making. One appendix deals with textual changes and errata in major editions of the novel, and the other confronts the novel's tangled evolution. Ackerley concentrates on Watt's disconcerting difficulties and the textual errors that have further obscured a true understanding of the work

Under the volcano by Malcolm Lowry( Book )

5 editions published between 1967 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Malcolm Lowry 1940 Under the Volcano has been regarded too often as little more than Lowry's blueprint - though a tentative one at best - for his 1947 masterwork, Under the Volcano. It has never been adequately considered in terms of Lowry's work that preceded it, or been fully critically edited on its own terms
