This chapter examines the life and work of Malcolm Lowry, who was born and raised in Cheshire, but who, for most of his erratic schooling, was in Cambridge. Lowry married an American woman, Jan Gabrial, in France; followed her to New York and Los Angeles; and took her to Mexico – but the marriage did not last. He met his second wife, Margerie Bonner, in Los Angeles, and they settled in Vancouver. In 1956 they moved to the small Sussex village of Ripe. Lowry died on 26 June 1957 (after swallowing a bottle of sodium amytal sleeping tablets). The analysis covers works such as Under the Volcano, Ultramarine, and The Voyage That Never Ends.

Keywords:   Malcolm Lowry, life, death, Jan Gabrial, Margerie Bonner
