This is the story of Dana Hilliot's first voyage, as mess-boy on the freighter "Oedipus Tyranjnus" bound for Bombay and Singapore and of his struggle to win the approval of his shipmates. This book alternates between Dana's own narrative and the humour of the seaman's conversation.

Malcolm Lowry was born in 1909 in northwest England, near Liverpool. During the 1930s he lived in London, New York, Mexico, and Los Angeles before moving to British Columbia in 1939. This move marked the start of a startlingly fertile period in Lowry's career as a 20th-century literary modernist. "The 1940 Under the Volcano "formed the basis for his masterpiece, "Under the Volcano "(1947)--one of the last great modernist novels.
