This brilliant and sympathetic account of Malcolm Lowry's chaotic and tragic life tells of the alcoholism that overshadowed his entire adult life, his wanderings through Europe and America, his two tempestuous marriages, and his constant struggle to write. As well as presenting extensive new criticism of Lowry's work, Douglas Day paints a rare and revealing portrait of this brilliant, clumsy, shy, prodigal, and outrageous genius.
