About this Item: Toronto, ON: Knopf Canada, 2002, 1st Edition, First Printing, Toronto, Ontario, 2002. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine (see description). Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine (see description). Photo Cover (illustrator). First Edition. -----------hard cover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket with a bit of very light rubbing, signed without inscription by Kincaid, ---"Jamaica Kincaidís first obsession, the island of Antigua, comes vibrantly to life under the gaze of Mr. Potter, an illiterate taxi driver who makes his living along the wide, open roads that pass the only towns he has ever seen and the graveyard where he will be buried. The sun shines squarely overhead, the ocean lies on every side, and suppressed passion fills the air. ---Misery infects the unstudied, slow pace of this island and of Mr. Potterís days. As Kincaidís narrative unfolds in linked vignettes, his story becomes the story of a vital, crippled community. Kincaid strings together a moving picture of Mr. Potterís ancestors -- beginning with memories of his father, a poor fisherman, and his mother, who committed suicide -- and the outside world that presses in on his life, in the persons of his Lebanese employer and, later, a couple fleeing World War II. Within these surroundings, Mr. Potter struggles to live at ease: to purchase a car, to have girlfriends, to shake off the encumbrance of his daughters -- one of whom will return to Antigua after he dies -- to tell his story with equal measures of distance and sympathy. ---In Mr. Potter, her most luminous, ambitious work to date, Kincaid breathes life into a figure unlike any in contemporary fiction, an individual consciousness emerging gloriously out of an unexamined life."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.
