Inside the Volcano : My Life with Malcolm Lowry, Paperback / softback Book

Inside the Volcano : My Life with Malcolm Lowry Paperback / softback


This intimate memoir of the tempestuous marriage between Jan Gabrial, a young, aspiring American writer, and British novelist Malcolm Lowry takes us through the highs and lows of this passionate, troubled relationship.

Lowry began writing his best-known work, Under the Volcano, during their marriage, while the two were living in Mexico.

He based the character of Yvonne on his wife. Now, for the first time, Jan Gabrial tells the true story of their lives during those heady years, and provides a compelling portrait of a troubled artist, a bright and independent young woman, their deep love and bitter struggles, and her positive role in the creation of his work.
