A mesmerizing exploration of the intensity and power of volcanoes in personal, geologic, and spiritual time.
Personal Volcano explores the history of volcano-related catastrophes worldwide, meditating on ecopoetics and climate catastrophes to come. Volcanoes have caused famines, even extinction — yet, in the context of geologic time, much like human beings, they take up barely a moment.
Laura Moriarty has unique wit and humor—and perhaps the most perceptive engagement with words that anyone’s had for years.
