The problems and satisfactions a writer finds in narrative writing can best be understood through the production and examination of a sustained narrative. Long Man, Small Island takes non-fictive events and characters and imposes an order upon them to abstract what one of the characters sees as significant in the events, and so makes a statement about the student mission experience and an emerging nation. The preface examines the scholarly aspects of creative writing, the genesis of the story, and the process and difficulties that emerged in the writing of this non-fictional narrative.
