About the Book

The Volcanoes from Puebla is an account of the author’s experiences in Mexico when he was twenty-three years old. Originating in pocket notebooks, composed of 175 sections in alphabetical order, it is a postmodern Bildungsroman. Part novel, memoir, autobiography, travel book, and motorcycle journal, The Volcanoes from Puebla is a poetic and sensitive appreciation of a fascinating country.

“Structured as an ‘album’ of personal observations and vignettes, it not only reflects Mexico’s own allure, but draws the reader back to its pages time and time again. Highly recommended!”

—Carl Franz, author of The People’s Guide to Mexico
