Puttnam Douglas Steward isn’t having an identity crisis--he is one.
As he drowns in expectations and disappointments, the matter of who he is—who he truly is—eludes him. Except for one thing: He’s a freak. He has to be. It’s the only answer that makes sense.
In the Wake of the Boatman is a brilliant drama, stirringly and sensitively told, about the elusiveness of identity.
