Extremely factual and detailed account of the modern world's most intense volcanic eruption in 1883. For those not of a scientific bent, the reading can become a bit dry.

From the back cover: On a Monday morning in April, a middle-aged writer goes into her living room to water the plants and finds a woman standing in front of the fig tree. The woman is wearing a navy blue trench coat and white Nikes and carries a small black suitcase on wheels. She is the Virgin Mary. Invited to stay for lunch, Mary explains that after 2,000 years of petition, adoration, and travelling, she is tired and needs some R & R.

A tender, witty and thought-provoking novel by a Canadian author.

Seven American towns, each with its own dreams, its aspirations and desperations, its sense of limits. Special Places reveals them to us in the graceful and stylish prose of Berton Roueche, with whom readers of The New Yorker have long been familiar. More than a collection of travel pieces, his prose portraits evoke the heart and soul of the places he visits.
