Synopses & Reviews
From 1939 to 1954, Malcolm Lowry lived and wrote in a shack near Dollarton, in North Vancouver. It was here that he revised and polished Under the Volcano
until it was almost ready for publication, and here that he experienced his happiest and most productive years. His posthumously published works are filled with references to the landscape and lifestyle he enjoyed while living in BC.
Now, for the first time, these Vancouver years are the focus of a Lowry study. The words and letters of AI Purdy, Earle Birney, George Robertson, and many others shed light on the great novelists's method of working, his view of the world and the fascinating, paradoxical character that was Malcolm Lowry. Extensively illustrated with photographs of people and places Lowry knew, Malcolm Lowry: Vancouver Days includes maps and a selected bibliography.
