Product description

Review

''Fierce, incantory . . . lyrical . . . powerful and disturbing.'' --Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

''Kincaid, always an elegant stylist, makes this story of a simple woman extraordinary . . . filling her prose with rich, poetic detail . . . An unforgettable account of singular survival.'' --San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

''A book that comes both to haunt and to dazzle us . . . [Kincaid] writes like an angel: with enviable lucidity and precision and a lyric touch that frequently aspires to the condition of poetry.'' --Boston Sunday Globe
