On December 7, 1989, Jamaica Kincaid visited the John Adams Institute to talk about 'A Small Place'. Lyrical, sardonic, and forthright, 'A Small Place' magnifies our vision of one small place with Swiftian wit and precision. Jamaica Kincaid's expansive essay candidly appraises the ten-by-twelve-mile island in the British West Indies where she grew up, and makes palpable the impact of European colonization and tourism. The book is a missive to the traveler, whether American or European, who wants to escape the banality and corruption of some large place. Kincaid, eloquent and resolute, reminds us that the Antiguan people, formerly British subjects, are unable to escape the same drawbacks of their own tiny realm-that behind the benevolent Caribbean scenery are human lives, always complex and often fraught with injustice.
