From the Library Journal review: "Lowry's 1947 novel, Under the Volcano, was a best seller that is still highly acclaimed by serious critics, yet the author remains one of this century's least appreciated British writers. A psychologically troubled man and sometimes violent heavy drinker who seemed to seek life on the edge in order to write about it, Lowry turned his life into brilliant fiction and often fictionalized his life, a process Bowker, an English editor of Lowry memorabilia, is sympathetic to and honest about in this first biography of the writer in 20 years. Bowker's thorough, well-researched, well-written work is fascinating if sometimes depressing reading; highly recommended for British literature collections."
