About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Under the Volcano by Lowry, Malcolm.

Description:

FIRST EDITION of Lowry's masterpiece; the basis for the 1984 John Huston film starring Albert Finney. "To describe his perennial theme, Lowry once borrowed the words of the critic Edmund Wilson: 'the forces in man which cause him to be terrified of himself.' You see exactly what he means in this coruscating novel, which traces the last 24 hours in the life of Geoffrey Firmin, once the British consul in a hellish Mexican town, now a dedicated but utterly cogent alcoholic in that same town, on a day when his ex-wife has returned in a futile attempt to reach out to him. Shadowed by the hoodlums of the corrupt local officialdom, beset by his own furies, Firmin hurtles himself, annotating his fall all the while, into a pit of suffering. A vertiginous picture of self-destruction, seen through the eyes of a man still lucid enough to report to us all the harrowing particulars" (Richard Lacayo, Time: All Time 100 Novels). New York: Reynal and Hitchcock, 1947. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. Book fine, dust jacket expertly restored and reinforced at spine and flaps; quite an attractive copy.
