"Under the Volcano" chronicles an entire lifetime in the course of a single day, the Day of the Dead, which is to be the last in the tragic life of alcoholic British consul Geoffrey Firmin. Set in Quahnahac, Mexico, against the backdrop of a conflicted Europe during the Spanish Civil War, it is a gripping novel of terror and a man's compulsive alienation from the world and those who love him. Considered to be a modern classic, "Under the Volcano" has been compared to the best of Joseph Conrad and James Joyce.
