Fiction fun with Jamaica Kincaid

4:37:00 PM

I like reading stories that are a little morbid and have a bit of a creepy aftertaste to them. Jamaica Kincaid lends a beautiful dark quality to her fiction, much of which I am hoping to get my hands on soon. In this story, "Figures In the Distance", a little girl is making sense of death. The thought process of the child is done so well here with strange interjections and tangents. If you have a moment, I have posted a link from the New Yorker to hear the story read aloud by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on their podcast. Let me know what you think of it. Happy listening lovies <3
