Riassunto: [Read by Robin Miles]
From the award-winning author of Annie John comes a brilliant look at colonialism and its effects in Antigua.
''If you go to Antigua as a tourist, this is what you will see. If you come by aeroplane, you will land at the V. C. Bird International Airport. Vere Cornwall (V. C.) Bird is the prime minister of Antigua. You may be the sort of tourist who would wonder why a prime minister would want an airport named after him -- why not a school, why not a hospital, why not some great public monument. You are a tourist and you have not yet seen ''
So begins Jamaica Kincaid's expansive essay, which shows us what we have not yet seen of the ten-by-twelve-mile island in the British West Indies where she grew up.
Lyrical, sardonic, and forthright by turns, in a Swiftian mode, A Small Place cannot help but amplify our vision of one small place and all that it signifies.
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.
