Under the Volcano
From Shelf: The 100 best novels written in English: the full list (Robert McCrum, The Guardian Dec 2021)

In the shadow of the volcano, ragged children beg coins to buy skulls made of chocolate, ugly pariah dogs roam the streets and Geoffrey Firmin - ex-consul, ex-husband, an alcoholic and a ruined man - is living out the last day of his life.
