Novelist and writer for the New Yorker, Jamaica Kincaid wrote about the island where she is from – Antigua – in her book A Small Place. She writes of its attraction to tourists and the ignorance of those tourists to its shameful past. She writes not only of the shame of Antigua’s past but also that of another island that colonised it and then left it to fend for itself having imposed upon it the ways of the West.
Kincaid’s honesty about the horrors of British imperialism is refreshing and raw. Her language is exquisite, evocative and convincing, opening our eyes to the real Caribbean living and the real Caribbean lives. Thanks to @dauntbooks for sending it my way ❤️📚
