Hear Us O Lord from Heaven Thy Dwelling Place

(1962)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Malcolm Lowry was a rare talent whose ambition was equaled only by his problems. Struggling with alcoholism and singularly unable to manage his own life, he "believed himself to be hopelessly unlucky"; and as volume editor Nicholas Bradley points out, "the evidence suggests that he was right."
This collection of short stories reveals a world of crashing prose in which Lowry draws heavily from his turbulent life to forge a tale of both heaven and hell on earth. From the rich paradise of British Columbia and the echoing beauty of Italy, to the unrelieved suffering of Mexico, Lowry's stories are layered, interwoven tales that speak to an unrealized literary potential.
This new edition includes an introduction, chronology, and notes, providing key insight into one of the underappreciated literary minds of the twentieth century.
An exciting and offbeat addition to Oxford's Outlooks on Canadian Literature series.
