1 McCarthy, Patrick A. Forests of Symbols, World, Text, and Self in Malcolm Lowry's Fiction
Athens, GA University of Georgia 1994 0-8203-1609-1 / 9780820316093 First Edition Fine Fine 
Fine copy of first printing of first edition in fine Brodarted dust jacket. Scholarly study of what made Lowry tick (and not tick, and never finish editing). Interesting analysis of Lowry's personality traits reflected in some of his characters. Strong discussion of some of Lowry's haunting fears, such as being labeled a plagiarist, and how that is reflected in various works. The book references specific language from many Lowry works and focuses the analysis on the written word. 266 pp. Extensive bibliography and index. We specialize in Malcolm Lowry literature and criticism.

2 Lowry, Malcolm, Edited By McCarthy, Patrick A. La Mordida
Athens, GA University of Georgia Press 1996 0-8203-1763-2 / 9780820317632 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
Fine copy of first printing of first edition in fine Brodarted dust jacket. Black boards with pumpkin lettering on spine, pumpkin end papers. Story based on Lowry's trip to Mexico in 1945-1946, unfinished at the time of his death. Another descent into the abyss. 400 pp, including 75 pages of bibliographic sources and reference footnotes. Lowry was forever editing his work, so McCarthy presents the manuscript from the UBC archives with Lowry's exact words and marginalia. You can see how and how much Lowry's writing evolved through his drafts. The thought process set forth in the marginalia is very interesting. We specialize in Malcolm Lowry literature and criticism.
