Sample text

Right, says the boy, grinning wolfishly. He writes quickly, SCARED SAID NOT TO SAY. Thus Simon is marked, not as a disabled mutant (although the local town folk see him as that), but as a young shaman, of European origin but in touch with the islands’ energy and spirit. He does not communicate through speech because the situation is skewed and people are incapable of understanding each other. In such negative circumstances, violence is the only viable communication, people can only contact each other physically; and Simon is the self-appointed lightning rod for that violence.

Thus, disability is accented here as alternate ability. Adah is not marked as different, and her inclusion allows her to pursue selfhood when she returns home. This is a refreshing break with the long literary tradition in which the disabled individual remains pitiable because he or she functions as a symbol, not a person and either self-destructs as the abnormal should, or is destroyed by representatives of an enraged normality. True, Kingsolver plays with another stereotypical trap, the rescue by a nondisabled mentor.

Joe, released from prison, is cured of his violence and guilt by the discovery of a sacred place, the landing-site of one of the original Great Canoes. Simon, escaping from his foster home, is reunited with Kerewin and Joe at the end, as his character blends with Maui, the Trickster figure of Maori myth. These two novels share a plot that has become common in the postcolonial novel. In labelling novels by an American Indian and a New Zealand Maori “postcolonial,” I am using the term in a fairly broad sense.
