Volcano is the Hawaiian village, situated between Kilaueea and Mauna Loa, where author and poet Garrett Hongo was born. It is a "chunk of the sublime" — as he calls it — that he lost at the age of six when his parents moved to Los Angeles. And Volcano is where Hongo returned as a young man to reclaim its dreamlike landscape of fern forests and lava tubes. It is also the subject of his novel Volcano: A Memoir of Hawaii.

Guest:
• Garret Hongo, a professor at the University of Oregon where he was director of the Program in Creative Writing from 1989 to 1993. He is the author of two books of poetry, Yellow Light and The River of Heaven. He is the author of Volcano: A Memoir of Hawaii. He lives in Eugene, Oregon.
