Critics have praised Shacochis for his "pitch-perfect prose." His books include the fictional Swimming in the Volcano and nonfictional The Immaculate Invasion. The novel won a National Book Award for First Fiction and Best New Contributor in Fiction award. Shacochis also received a James Michener Award, a Pushcart Prize, and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. He has written extensively about the Caribbean and his most recent article in Outside magazine is an account of a journey through a politically volatile Nepal.
