Choice Review

Lowry (1909-57), a British-born author who lived intermittently in Mexico and Canada, had only two novels published in his lifetime, but more material posthumously. He is not generally regarded as a major literary figure, in the sense that Joyce or Eliot was. This volume is a collection of biographical essays and material related to Lowry's best-known work, Under the Volcano (1947). Virtually all of the pieces have appeared in print elsewhere; and although some unique information is included, the issue becomes whether or not its presence warrants the duplication of all the accompanying material. Libraries with particularly strong collections in Commonwealth literature should add this item; those without probably can get along without it. Recommended for support of graduate programs only. -A.
