Description

The coming-of-age story of one of Jamaica Kincaid's most admired creationsLucy, a teenage girl from the West Indies, comes to North America to work as an au pair for Lewis and Mariah and their four children.

Lewis and Mariah are a thrice-blessed couple-handsome, rich, and seemingly happy.

Yet, almost at once, Lucy begins to notice cracks in their beautiful facade.

With mingled anger and compassion, Lucy scrutinizes the assumptions and verities of her employers' world and compares them with the vivid realities of her native place.

Lucy has no illusions about her own past, but neither is she prepared to be deceived about where she presently is.

At the same time that Lucy is coming to terms with Lewis's and Mariah's lives, she is also unraveling the mysteries of her own sexuality.

Gradually a new person unfolds: passionate, forthright, and disarmingly honest.

In Lucy, Jamaica Kincaid has created a startling new character possessed with adamantine clear-sightedness and ferocious integrity-a captivating heroine for our time.
