    Jamaica Kincaid's expansive essay candidly appraises the ten-by-twelve mile island of the British West Indies where she grew up and makes palpable the impact of European colonization and tourism. The book is a missive, both urgent and poetic, to the traveler, whether American or European, who wants to escape the banality and corruption of some large place. She reminds readers that the Antiguan people, formerly British subjects, are unable to escape the same drawbacksof their own tiny realm - that behind the benevolent Caribbean scenery are human lives, always complex and often fraught with injustice.
