An impression of Malcolm Lowry by ED THOMASON with and To Malcolm Lowry, the divisions between his fiction and his life were always unclear. He shared Ortega's belief that man's life is like a story which he makes up as he goes along and that to learn about the mechanics of writing was to learn the mechanics of destiny. But while Lowry's own life notably lacked the exotic brilliance of Under the Volcano, the man himself compelled remarkable loyalty, love and respect.
