Annie John: A Novel | Jamaica Kincaid
post image

#TitlesAndTunes #ReadingTheAmericas23 #Antigua This book was phenomenal 🙌🏻♥️My first time reading Jamaica Kincaid, I completely understand why she‘s an iconic Caribbean author. Her prose are lyrical and melodic, every word like an island breeze warm and rhythmic. A semi autobiographical coming of age story told in snapshots over the course of several years. The theme often repeated is the intense love/hate relationship between mother & daughter.

squirrelbrain Sounds wonderful! I‘m going to get a Kincaid book from the library for this prompt. 1mo
Cinfhen Is audio available on #Scribd @squirrelbrain ??? Because Robin Miles did an outstanding job of narrating 1mo

squirrelbrain There‘s only one book on Scribd (audio or print) and it appears to be set in New England. 🤷‍♀️ Although I suppose I could go with ‘author from…‘ rather than ‘book set in…‘ 1mo
BarbaraBB What a fab review! It is one of the #1001books that I really want to read now! 1mo
Cinfhen It was super short @BarbaraBB but it left a HUGE impression- I will 💯 read more from Kincaid 1mo
Cinfhen Hmmmm , can‘t say I‘m at all familiar with that book @squirrelbrain 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1mo
Librarybelle Hooray!! 1mo

Frankenstein Moved in on the Fourth Floor | Mordicai Gerstein, Elizabeth Levy

Going with a light, easy read this morning. My head has been all over the place. I received some very devastating news yesterday, my cousin was MURDERED! You know, you read about it, you watch shows, and hear stories, but you never think it's going to happen to someone you love. The saddest part is he has an infant daughter. 😭

Claudia Rankine is amazing, not only for her intellectual rigour in these essays about the racist structure of American society, but also for her open-minded engagement in conversation with white people—friends and strangers—on this topic. Her desire to understand racist viewpoints strikes me as a useful step in dismantling them, and creating a better future. #outstanding

Fortunately, the Milk | Neil Gaiman

Gaiman‘s fantastic worlds are a delight on audio and he‘s an expert interpreter of his own work. These two audio narration are #outstanding among the few I‘ve listened.


Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I really need to read some of his books!! 3y
OriginalCyn620 I‘ve read a few by him (and loved them) but never listened to one and always hear he‘s fantastic narrating his work. I‘m putting that on my list! 3y
