Under The Volcano by Malcolm Lowry ranked # 11 on The Modern Library's Top 100 Novels list as selected by its Board Members.

Under The Volcano by Malcolm Lowry - Just The Good Stuff Under the Volcano (1947) is a semi-autobiographical novel by English writer Malcolm Lowry. It tells the story of Geoffrey Firmin, an alcoholic British consul in the small Mexican town of Quauhnahuac (recognizably Cuernavaca), on the Day of the Dead in 1938.

In 1944, the manuscript was nearly lost in a fire at Lowry's shack in British Columbia. His second wife, Margerie, rescued the unfinished novel, but all of Lowry's other works in progress were lost in the blaze.

A 1984 film version was directed by John Huston and stars Albert Finney, Jacqueline Bisset, Anthony Andrews and Katy Jurado. It was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Albert Finney).
