London. 1962. Jonathan Cape. 1st British Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket With Chipping Along The Front Side Edge Near the Top. 283 pages. hardcover. keywords: Literature England. inventory # 9296. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Malcolm Lowry achieved literary fame for his extraordinary novel, UNDER THE VOLCANO. Now in this posthumous collection of three short novels and four stories, comes some of the finest writing of our time. Its publication in America caused a sensation. ‘He has made a work of art,’ said the New York Times, ‘moving, noble, to be received with humility and gratitude.’ In the first long story of a sea voyage, Lowry’s particular genius for conveying the feel of life, time, mind, is at its most polished and intense. Laced with myths, musical themes, scenery, and shot with the magnificent laughter of a mind at grips with itself, it is told in succinct, diary form interspersed with longer reflections. The middle stories show the influence of Henry James in the handling of complex consciousness. They deal with writers abroad, and are set among the ruins of Pompeii, Rome and personal pasts. Then there are autobiographical accounts of his life in British Columbia. Lowry’s prose has magnificent flexibility, and his stories read as if an extraordinarily sensitive mind had been imprinted on the paper. It is a remarkable record of the development of a mind and of a writer. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket With Chipping Along The Front Side Edge Near the Top. Bookseller Inventory # 9296
