James PolkWriting with assurance and control, James uses his small-town drama to suggest the larger anguish of a postcolonial society struggling for its own identity. But he mixes this with an evocation of a cultlike religious fervor that recalls the People's Temple and the Jonestown massacre of the 1970's. At the same time, the clash of individual wills and the profound sexual confusion of the characters provide the narrative with a more precise, more personal dimension.
