About the Author:

Jamaica Kincaid, born in St. John's, Antigua, is the author of short stories, novels, and nonfiction. Her 2013 novel See Now Then was a New York Times bestseller. A former reporter for the New Yorker magazine, she is a professor of literature at Claremont-McKenna College in California.

Review:

''Ms. Kincaid writes with passion and conviction . . . [with] a poet's understanding of how politics and history, private and public events, overlap and blur.'' --The New York Times

''A jeremiad of great clarity and force that one might have called torrential were the language not so finely controlled.'' --Salman Rushdie

''A rich and evocative prose that is also both urgent and poetic . . . Kincaid is a witness to what is happening in our West Indian back yards. And I trust her.'' --Los Angeles Times Book Review

''Kincaid continues to write with a unique, compelling voice that cannot be found anywhere else. Her small books are worth a pile of thicker--and hollower ones.'' --San Francisco Chronicle

''This is truth, beautifully and powerfully stated . . . In truly lyrical language that makes you read aloud, [Kincaid] takes you from the dizzying blue of the Caribbean to the sewage of hotels and clubs where black Antiguans are only allowed to work . . . Truth, wisdom, insight, outrage, and cutting wit.'' --The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

''Wonderful reading . . . Tells more about the Caribbean in 80 pages than all the guidebooks.'' --The Philadelphia Inquirer
