David Markson's Master's thesis at Columbia University gave rise to his critical work Malcolm Lowry's Volcano: Myth, Symbol, Meaning (Westminister, Maryland, U.S.A.: Times Books, 1978). UBC Special Collections has letters to Markson from Margerie Lowry (131), Douglas Day (20), Conrad Knickerbocker (13), and Peter Churchill (1). Markson has since published various critically acclaimed works of literary criticism since his Lowry book.
