<p>A brilliant look at colonialism and its effects in Antigua--by the author of <i>Annie John</i></p><p><i>"If you go to Antigua as a tourist, this is what you will see. If you come by aeroplane, you will land at the V. C. Bird International Airport. Vere Cornwall (V. C.) Bird is the Prime Minister of Antigua. You may be the sort of tourist who would wonder why a Prime Minister would want an airport named after him--why not a school, why not a hospital, why not some great public monument. You are a tourist and you have not yet seen . . ."</i></p><p>So begins Jamaica Kincaid's expansive essay, which shows us what we have not yet seen of the ten-by-twelve-mile island in the British West Indies where she grew up.</p><p>Lyrical, sardonic, and forthright by turns, in a Swiftian mode, <i>A Small Place</i> cannot help but amplify our vision of one small place and all that it signifies.</p>

Customer Reviews
When an almost forty-year-old Canadian on vacation meets a gorgeous young Jamaican on the beach things quickly heat up, despite their age difference . . .<br /><br />Their sexy two-week romance—lazy days cavorting in turquoise seas under the blazing sun and sultry nights dancing to reggae music—sounds like every woman’s dream. But, within weeks of returning to build a life with him, she finds herself living in the remote countryside in a 12 x 12 cabin without running water, electricity, or indoor plumbing. Add in family and neighbours who despise her on sight, a brush with police, a reappearing ex-girlfriend, a court case and a possible paternity suit—all happening in a language she doesn’t understand—and the dream quickly turns into a nightmare.<br /><br />Alternately hilarious and heart-wrenching, The Sand Pig and The Slippery-headed Fish takes you on a journey that travels beyond the fancy all-inclusive vacations and into the reality of life in a developing country, while exploring the challenges of a cross cultural, long distance relationship, and questions the notion that love can conquer all.

<p>As a first-hand account of the weird mysteries and horrors of voodoo, <em>Tell My Horse</em> is an invaluable resource and fascinating guide. Based on Zora Neale Hurston's personal experiences in Haiti and Jamaica, where she participated as an initiate rather than just an observer of voodoo practices during her visits in the 1930s, this travelogue into a dark world paints a vividly authentic picture of ceremonies and customs and superstitions of great cultural interest.</p>

<b>A city of tropical heat, sweat, ramshackle beauty, and its very own cadence--a city that always surprises--Havana is brought to pulsing life by <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Mark Kurlansky.</b><br /><br />Award-winning author Mark Kurlansky presents an insider's view of Havana: the elegant, tattered city he has come to know over more than thirty years. Part cultural history, part travelogue, with recipes, historic engravings, photographs, and Kurlansky's own pen-and-ink drawings throughout, <i>Havana </i>celebrates the city's singular music, literature, baseball, and food; its five centuries of outstanding, neglected architecture; and its extraordinary blend of cultures. <br /> <br /> Like all great cities, Havana has a rich history that informs the vibrant place it is today--from the native Taino to Columbus's landing, from Cuba's status as a U.S. protectorate to Batista's dictatorship and Castro's revolution, from Soviet presence to the welcoming of capitalist tourism. Havana is a place of extremes: a beautifully restored colonial city whose cobblestone streets pass through areas that have not been painted or repaired since long before the revolution. <br /> <br /> Kurlansky shows Havana through the eyes of Cuban writers, such as Alejo Carpentier and José Martí, and foreigners, including Graham Greene and Hemingway. He introduces us to Cuban baseball and its highly opinionated fans; the city's music scene, alive with the rhythm of Son; its culinary legacy. Through Mark Kurlansky's multilayered and electrifying portrait, the long-elusive city of Havana comes stirringly to life.
