About This Item

'Shacochis uses his superb command of language to explore the ethical and emotional complexities beneath the surface of everyday events. Most significantly, he embraces big themes with enegry and confidence.... whether you believe fiction should speak to larger truths or you simply take joy in music of extraordinary writing, you will want to read this book' Playboy

'In some of the most brilliantly sinuous and seductive prose being written today, Shacochis summons the spirits of guilt and innocence, of love and hate, of white and black America and the third world' Newsday

'Shacochis' language, his heart and his understanding leave the reader feeling exhilarated... (It) shares with Under the Volcano the powerful combination of the serious and the sensual, the same palpable rendering of the place... Swimming in the Volcano is the finest first novel I have read in many years' Chicago Tribune

About October Books

October Books, founded in 1977 and now based on Portswood Road in Southampton, is a not-for-profit co-operative radical neighbourhood bookshop. Any money we make, is ploughed back into the business. We trade independently from any political organisation, and seek to promote a fair and equal society. Our workers and volunteers are from many different backgrounds, and they bring diversity to the shop, so everyone feels at home in October Books. Our stock is comprised of general popular fiction, non-fiction and children's books, alongside our traditional range of specialised radical books and magazines. Our specialty areas are social issues, adoption, humanities and political issues. We can order any book in print in the UK, US and Europe, but we don't have any online ordering facilities- call into the shop or order by phone. Over the years, we have expanded our range to greeting cards, organic and fair-trade foods and green household items.
