Description

It is the fiesta Day of Death in Mexico and Geoffrey Firmin - ex-consul, ex-husband, an alcoholic and a ruined man - is living out the last day of his life. Drowning himself in mescal while his former wife and half-brother look on, powerless to help him, the consul has become an enduring tragic figure. His story, the image of one man's agonised journey towards Calvary, became a prophetic book for a whole generation. 'To an extraordinary degree, Lowry lived his masterpiece, transforming his private hell into something of universal significance.' Daily Mail

Author Biography
