Pursued by Furies: A Life of Malcolm Lowry by Gordon Bowker

'Malcolm Lowry was a ferocious malcontent, freewheeling to self-destruction with the help of mescal, cooking sherry, even bottles of skin bracer ... Rarely has a writer so elaborated his own legend as did Lowry. He was mythogenic; not only could he make the wildest nonsense about himself credible, but encouraged others to add to it. This makes him a murderous subject for a biography ... Gordon Bowker is a trustworthy guide. Fabulously methodical in his research, he has traced various members of the Lowry family as well as the writer's first wife. Pursued by Furies is a gigantic tome, but Bowker writes well and keeps the pages turning. This is probably the last word on Lowry and a handsome achievement ... a fine, intelligent biography.' Ian Thomson, Guardian'Intelligent and painstaking ... Pursued by Furies is a cool, thorough and not uncritical appraisal of a dreadful life and is not likely to be superseded.' Ian Hamilton, Sunday Telegraph'Gripping and thoroughly engaged ... Lowry's biography won't have to be done again.' Martin Amis, Independent on Sunday
