Jamaica Kincaid (born May 25, 1949) is an Antiguan-American novelist, essayist, gardener, and gardening writer. She was born in St. John's, Antigua, which is part of the twin-island nation of Antigua and Barbuda. She lives in North Bennington, Vermont, during the summers and teaches at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California, during the academic year. Kincaid is an award-winning writer whose work has been both commended and criticized for its subject matter and tone because her writing draws upon her life and is perceived as angry. In response, Kincaid counters that writers draw upon their lives all the time and that to describe her writing as autobiographical and angry is not a valid criticism. Jacket design by Cynthia Krupat. Jacket illustration, 'Green Summer' by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones, 1868. 0374106606. keywords: 42390. inventory # 42547. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Reading Jamaica Kincaid is to plunge, gently, into another way of seeing both the physical world and its elusive inhabitants. Her voice is, by turns, naïvely whimsical and biblical in its assurance, and it speaks of what is partly remembered, partly divined, The memories often concern a childhood in the Caribbean - family, manners, and landscape - as distilled and transformed by Kincaid’s special style and vision. ‘Girl,’ the first story in this collection of ten pieces, plays with a particular but typical upbringing: ‘Wash the white clothes on Monday and put them on the stone heap; wash the color clothes on Tuesday and put them on the clothesline to dry always eat your food in such a way that it won’t turn someone else’s stomach; on Sundays, try to walk like a lady and not like the slut you are so bent on becoming.’ The catalogue of demands is varied, the refrain repeated, as in a song. In ‘Holidays,’ a trip to the country is related with the same light touch. The title story, ‘At the Bottom of the River,’ is a culmination of the themes and imagery that inform most of this short but seemingly limitless book. Kincaid leads her readers to consider, as if for the first time, the powerful ties between mother and child; the beauty and destructiveness of nature; the gulf between the masculine and the feminine; the significance of familiar things-a house, a cup, a pen. Transfiguring our human form and our surroundings-shedding skin, darkening an afternoon, painting a perfect place-these stories tell us something we didn’t know, in a way we hadn’t expected. ISBN: 0374106606.

Jamaica Kincaid's inspired, lyrical short stories Reading Jamaica Kincaid is to plunge, gently, into another way of seeing both the physical world and its elusive inhabitants. Her voice is, by turns, naively whimsical and biblical in its assurance, and it speaks of what is partially remembered partly divined. The memories often concern a childhood in the Caribbean--family, manners, and landscape--as distilled and transformed by Kincaid's special style and vision. Kincaid leads her readers to consider, as if for the first time, the powerful ties between mother and child; the beauty and destructiveness of nature; the gulf between the masculine and the feminine; the significance of familiar things--a house, a cup, a pen. Transfiguring our human form and our surroundings--shedding skin, darkening an afternoon, painting a perfect place--these stories tell us something we didn't know, in a way we hadn't expected.
