Lucy is nineteen, vinegary, quick-tongued au pair from the West Indies who has left behind her island girlhood for a fierce awakening in urban North America. "Beautifully precise prose...It leaves the reader with the unforgettable experience of having met a ferociously honest woman on her own uncompromising terms."
(Key Words: Jamaica Kincaid, Au Pairs, Fiction, West Indies, Sexuality).
