Newly available after 40 years, this partly autobiographical love affair with the Jamaican language and landscape gives a penetrating look at the racial politics of the 1950s and 1960s and the search for self in a world divided by class.

Ramsay Tull is witness to the black racial discontents and the desire for national independence that are threatening the old colonial order; but when a chance comes to study at Oxford University, he becomes immersed in European literary culture and Marxism.

On his return to Jamaica, Ramsay becomes actively involved in radical nationalist politics and begins his second journey, away from his middle-class origins and back to a true appreciation of the Jamaican people.
