Jakarta Night Quotes

American movies, English books - remember how they all end?" Gamini asked that night. "The American or the Englishman gets on a plane and leaves. Thats it. The camera leaves with him. He looks out of the window at Mombasa or Vietnam or Jakarta, someplace now he can look at through the clouds. The tired hero. A couple of words to the girl beside him. Hes going home. So the war, to all purposes, is over. Thats enough reality for the West. Its probably the history of the last two hundred years of Western political writing. Go home. Write a book. Hit the circuit.
