ANTIGUA & BARBADA *

Jamaica Kincaid — Lucy (1990)

Setting: East Coast USA

What it’s about: A live-in nanny from “the islands” becomes the witness who lays bare the hypocrisy of a wealthy US family.

Why you should read it: For the compelling, but hard-to-read, exposure of dark secrets from the narrator and the people around her.

You’ll like this if you liked: Wide Saragossa Sea.
