Arthur Miller on the Art of Theater.

“Besides being one of the great talents of this century, Malcolm Lowry was also a ferocious drunk, fallen and exiled heir to the back parlor of the Establishment, seastruck fumble-thumbed sailor, composer of hack foxtrots and banger of jazz ukeleles, remittance man, syphilophobe, masturbator, poet, myth-maker and Faust”: Conrad Knickerbocker on Malcolm Lowry.

A story by James Salter. Poems by Leroi Jones and John Montague.
