257 pp. The Dark Side of Port Moresby highlights perfectly the clash between traditional values and modern realities that is life in Papua New Guinea today. Cousins Jules and Suglare are young men with very different lives. One is a talented musician destined for study at the conservatory of music in London, and the other is a rascal, living off the spoils of crime. But both men show respect for the traditional ways of their people, both are caught up in the corruption that has enveloped their country, and both raise questions about the future of their society. The action in this gripping novel is mixed with hard questions about the political and social problems facing Papua New Guinea today. Wiri Yakaipoko doesn't pull any punches when making the reader confront these questions, because he knows that the future of his country depends on its citizens coming up with the right answers. 0.0.
