A powerful verse novel from one of Australia's favourite authors.

Alone and grieving, Alexander feels ready to erupt. Can he find his way back to hope?

'A real volcano boy,' his mother had called him.

Placed in the custody of his puritanical but well-meaning Uncle Frank, Alexander moves from Brisbane to volcano-circled Rabaul in Papua New Guinea. There the dark powers of the rumbling volcano call to him as irresistibly as the dark eyes of Alice, his newfound love. Alexander records his experiences in a moving, candid journal that surfaces many years after the volcano's fury has settled to ash.

'VOLCANO BOY is beautifully written, and Hathorn is a beautiful writer.' - LITERATURE CAFE
