Book overview

I had forgotten how much I enjoy Cary's style of writing and An American Visitor reminded me of that. The prose is clean and gem sharp. The characterisation jovial, but mostly thoughtful, although there are probably a few too many caricatures present for the book to be wholly satisfying. Like many of his later novels, this book deals with grim issues of colonial existence in Nigeria with apparent humour and lightness of touch, but underneath there is a bitter and at times cynical note.

Cary straddles the Victorian era and the 20th Century in terms of his writing and approach to colonial life. At times I wasn't totally comfortable with the expressed colonial attitudes, but then the book is a constant undermining of that mind set, so it may be that my occasional queasiness is as intentional as the more obvious irony and cynicism elsewhere in the book. Though the fact that the book was written in 1933 must be indicative of some of the culture clashes this reader experienced.

Whilst this is not Cary's best novel, it is an interesting, always entertaining and ultimately thought-provoking read.
