A Serving Of Malcolm Lowry

Check out Scandal Park's images of Mexico

When I consider the books that have shaken me up, Under the Volcano by Malcolm Lowry is a certain clubhouse leader; not at all an original reaction, given the remarkable raw girth of the autobiographical novel.

The National Film Board of Canada produced a marvelous documentary on Malcolm Lowry in 1976. Volcano: An Inquiry into the Life and Death of Malcolm Lowry was nominated for an Oscar.

The film is also a rich repository of images of Mexico. Watching it once again prompted me to revisit my own collection of Mexican photos and to post a few favorites.
