About the book >.>.> Trying to follow Malcolm Lowry’s life is like venturing without a map into a maze inside a labyrinth lost in a wilderness. The maze itself is a shadow-filled hall of distorting mirrors some of them cracked. In what little light there is we catch sight from time to time of a figure in various disguises luring us on like a will-o’-the-wisp first down one trail and then along another. The pursuit is made even more confusing by others travelling in the opposite direction offering conflicting advice on which way to travel. It is a merry often exhausting but always exhilarating dance. No wonder that one of his earliest critics predicted that Lowry would be the despair of his biographer. Lowry was of course the contriver of some of the most complex and compelling fiction of modern times and his life it sometimes seems was his most complex and compelling fictional contrivance of all. This is almost certainly attributable to his sense as a young man that he was somehow different from his contemporaries a man with a calling set apart and fated by virtue of the special creative gifts he possessed to suffer for the sake of producing great literature.
