'Swining in Maelstrom' is Lowry's story of a musician enduring existence in Bellevue, the psychiatric hospital in New York where Lowry himself spent some days in 1936. The novella, written in Canada between 1942 and 1944, during Lowry's happiest and most fruitful years, reveals the deep influence on Lowry of the healing experience of his idyllic retreat in Dollarton.
