Om författaren

Jamaica Kincaid came to the United States in 1966 as a free-lance writer and is now on staff at the New Yorker. Her first volume of stories, At the Bottom of the River (1983), depicts men and women alienated from each other by conflict, physical separation, or death. The story "My Mother" vividly visa mer describes the painful separation between mother and daughter; and the stories in Annie John (1985) clearly reveal that the world of the past cannot be recaptured. Kincaid's poetic use of language and everyday images allows the reader to experience ordinary events with a new and heightened sensitivity. Kincaid is a relatively new writer whose works are beginning to receive critical attention. (Bowker Author Biography) Jamaica Kincaid, novelist, memoirist, & essayist, was born in St. John's, Antigua. Her books include At the Bottom of the River, Annie John, Lucy, The Autobiography of My Mother, and My Brother, all published by FSG. She lives with her family in Vermont.

Recensioner

Lucy utvandrar från en liten karibisk ö till New york för att arbeta som barnflicka. Hennes skarpsynta observationer av omvärlden är mycket träffande. Skillnader i kultur, klass och hur människor beter sig mot varandra är riktigt bra. Lucy själv bär med sig ett mörkt förflutet och hon gestaltas inte som någon allt igenom sympatisk person. Sammanfattningsvis är det förbaskat välskrivet och bra litteratur.

En flickas frigörelse från (framförallt) sin mor. Det råkar utspela sig på Antigua (författarens hemland), men kunde var varsomhelst i världen. Det är avskalat skrivet, utan ordsvammel - det uppskattas. Men det blir aldrig intressant för mig. Jag tycker det är tråkigt och intetsägande.

Mer om förhållandena att leva på Antigua hade passat mig bättre.
