Article snippet: Cub mentioned in book

Here's a brief snippet from the book Malcolm Lowry: From the Mersey to the World
By Bryan Biggs, Helen Tookey.

About the book:
Malcolm Lowry described Liverpool as 'that terrible city whose main street is the oceanż. Born on the Wirral side of the river Mersey, Lowryżs relationship to the Merseyside of his youth informs all of his writing and Liverpool itself continued to hold tremendous significance for him, even though he never returned. Published in conjunction with a festival and exhibition at Liverpoolżs Bluecoat arts centre celebrating Lowryżs centenary, this beautifully produced book showcases a variety of creative and critical approaches to Lowry and his work, and includes twelve specially commissioned pieces of new writing. There is a particular focus on place and on journeys; contributors write from the UK, Europe, Canada and Mexico, and reflect both on Lowryżs 'voyage that never endsż and on their own journeys with and through Lowryżs work. The book also demonstrates the richness of Lowryżs influence on contemporary visual artists and includes full colour illustrations throughout. It will be an indispensable companion for anyone interested in the creative legacy of Malcolm Lowryżs life and work.
