Under the Volcano (P.S.) by Malcolm Lowry
Under the Volcano (P.S.)

shaw, December 11, 2007

Of this book the New York Times said, "Under the Volcano” embraces everything from Dante to Freud to the cabala. Here it shambles like Cervantes, there it rages like Ahab, and every page of it pulsates on Out of Body Auto-Reply, that style of pure Lowry that points at once backward, to all European literature, and forward, to the mother of all nervous breakdowns."

Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates
Revolutionary Road

shaw, October 18, 2006

Revolutionary Road tells the story of Frank and April Wheeler fighting to keep the hounds of boredom at bay and failing in their own miserable and compelling ways. Ricard Yates takes the lid off marriage in the suburbs and reveals the rot under the surface.
