Set on a troubled Caribbean island--where Asians, Africans, Americans, and former British colonials coexist in a state of suppressed hysteria--Guerrillas is a novel of colonialism and revolution. The exiled former hero of the South African resistance, who is also white, arrives on the island with his mistress, an Englishwoman inflamed by fantasies of native power and sexuality. Together with a young mulatto leader of the "Revolution," they act out a gripping drama of death, sexual violence, and political and spiritual impotence that illuminates the ravages of history.
