Under The Volcano

I read Lowry during the first few
years in Mexico...I fancied I was
like him, romantically and obscurely
drinking myself to death under the
looming metaphor for the end of
civilization. I quit drinking due to a
vision I was a miracle, but I 
can't prove that. Meanwhile, the
metaphor has expanded to the 
whole world about to blow. He
probably wouldn't have finished
that book had it not been for his.
wife. A modern novel about an 
end time.  Writing the book same 
as drinking himself to death.
You notice there are no more books 
of the Bible after Revelations
