Jamaica Kincaid's brother Devon Drew dies of AIDS on January 19, 1996, at the age of 1996, at the age of thirty-three. Kincaid's incantatory, poetic and often shockingly frank recounting of her brother's life and death is also a story of her family on the island of Antigua, a constellation centered on the powerful, sometimes threatening figure of the writer's mother. Kincaid' unblinking records of a life that ended too early speaks volumes about the difficult truths at the heart of all families.
