Jamaica Kincaid's incantatory, poetic, and often shockingly frank recounting of her brother Devon Drew's life is also the story of her family on the island of Antigua, a constellation centered on the powerful, sometimes threatening figure of the writer's mother. Kincaid's unblinking record of a life that ed too early speaks volumes about the difficult truths at the heart of all families.

Anna Quindlen

A sustained meditation on the grinding wheel of family, with mother always at the hub; on the countries of our past, both real and emotional, which we havd fled and in which we have felt like strangers. . . .a memoir about death that portrays it as it is, not as we would have it be, as we so often tailor it both in memoir and fiction. -- The New York TimesBook Review
