Malcolm Lowry, Epitaph
Late of the Bowery
His prose was flowery
And often glowery
He lived,nightly, and drank, daily,
And died playing the ukulele.
Selected Poems of Malcolm Lowry
City Lights Books, 1962
Malcolm Lowry's most notable accomplishment was the semi-autobiographical novel "Under the Volcano," perhaps the greatest novel by an alcoholic about an alcoholic. It was also a great movie starring Albert Finney, John Huston and Jacqueline Bisset. If you really want to know about alcoholism, read Lowry's book and see the movie.
