This copy has been SIGNED by Jamaica Kincaid on the title page! "If you go to Antigua as a tourist, this is what you will see. If you come by airplane, 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..." So begins the author's third book, which shows us what we have not yet seen of the place where she grew up—a ten-by-twelve mile island in the British West Indies. This expansive essay - lyrical, sardonic, and forthright by turns, in a Swiftian mode - cannot help but amplify our vision of one small place and all that it signifies.
