Winner of the American Book Award for Easy in the Islands, Bob Shacochis returns to the setting of his first collection of stories with Swimming in the Volcano, a haunting and evocative novel possessed of the same beauty as the places and people of the Caribbean. Set on the fictional Caribbean island of St. Catherine, an American expatriate becomes unwittingly embroiled in an internecine war between rival factions of the government. Into this potentially explosive scene enters a woman once loved and lost, but who remains a powerful temptation-one that proves impossible to resist.
