But as we rolled away from the school and back down Market Street toward Drake, all the history shaping how he spent his days and how I was spending mine, was hovering in the car and between us as well, as it always does: our appointed roles here, in this small place, whose strictures could be transcended but where subversion might never feel total.Well... no, it won't, but it's not like he ever even tried to engage on a level that goes in any way, shape, or form beyond a simple tourist transaction. The contrast between his admiration for Kincaid's writing on the one hand, and his own obliviousness to his own role in the very dynamics she condemns, is mind-boggling.
