Swimming In The Volcano

by Bob Shacochis

Condition: Very Good+/Very Good+

'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
