Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Lucy, a nineteen-year-old girl from the West Indies, comes to North America to work as an au pair and observes the unhealthy realities of the seemingly happy family that employs her, in a new edition of the acclaimed coming-of-age novel. Reprint.


Review:

"The toughness and elegance of Kincaid's writing is all that one could want. It is both poetic and matter-of-fact in its precision and spareness."

Susanna Moore, Washington Post Book World

Review:

"Lucy's self-assertion is reckless, regretful, but irresistible, and it is Kincaid's representation of it as inevitable that accounts for the psychological richness of the novel....Lucy has an experimental indifference, a sane ingratitude, toward the people who offer her friendship, sex, or opportunities....She wins, because new people are merely specimens to her...."

Darryl Pinckney, New York Review of Books, 03/21/1996

The coming-of-age story of one of Jamaica Kincaid s most admired creations--newly available in paperback Lucy, 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, alomst 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 unravelling 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 clearsightedness and ferocious integrity--a captivating heroine for our time.
