      The stories in the second half of the book, particularly the ones set in the landscape north of Vancouver, are the most compelling stories in the book. The Italian stories and sea stories, less so. His prose at times reminded me of Joyce--complex, full of allusions, a writer's writing--but I can't say I was blown away. These pieces are just that, pieces. I will say that the ending of Elephant and Colosseum was a remarkable piece of almost mystical qualities, and like many an alcoholic, it is cle [...]

      I love Lowry. His Italian stories not so much but "Through the Panama" yes and in particular my personal favourite "The Forest Path to the Spring". Not the masterpiece of Under the Volcano but a must-read for Lowry fans.

      Didn't read the whole thing. I found the "message in a bottle" story fascinating, but I got bored with the tedious other stories.
