Lunar Caustic



Introducing the new Mini Modern Classics. The short story is we're going to change the way you read.

'Staring out at the river his agony was like a great lidless eye'

In this stark, compelling and greatly autobiographical novella, Malcolm Lowry tells the story of Bill Plantagenet, a piano player and ex-sailor who has lost his band and his mind drinking in New York. As Plantagenet commits himself to a Psychiatric hospital to suffer his recovery, Lowry writes with eloquent ferocity on the delusions of madness, and the true meaning of sanity.
