Danticat's 2013 novel
Claire of the Sea Light
In our discussion of the character Catherine's exploitation of Princesse, I mentioned a long essay by Jamaica Kincaid called "A Small Place." Google Books offers an 11-page preview [here]. I defy you to finish this preview and not buy the entire book on Amazon. If you'd like to read the reflective exercise (including an excerpt of Kincaid's essay) that I gave to my GCP Trinidad and Tobago group last year, click [here].
Finally, for those of you interested in the blog I created for that trip, click [here]. Any questions about Trinidad, Tobago, or the GCP program? I'm happy to answer questions or gush about how great the trip and program are.
