Reviews

"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
