Sweet. The new novel by Jamaica Kincaid, See Now Then, is likely to frustrate those readers who bear with her to the end. I found that I had to give myself up to her poetic meandering and not worry much about what was going on. By bearing with her to the end, I closed the book with a sense that I had absorbed the life of protagonist Mrs. Sweet, and in some ways I began to see the world from her point of view. Read a sample before deciding to plunge in.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
