What Katy Did Next
Katy was the sort of girl who might do anything next. so long as it was something exciting! At twenty-one. she was as eager for adventure as ever. and what greater adventure could there be for an American girl than a trip to Europe? Watching a Punch-and-Judy show in London…driving down the Champs-Elysees in Paris…on to the Riviera and the picture-postcard blue of the Mediterranean…on again to Italy. Naples. Rome. Florence and. at last. to Venice and into a gondola on the Grand Canal. with a handsome young naval officer who-ah. but that would be telling!

Case of Jennie Brice
The blood-stained rope and towel. the stray slipper. the broken knife-and the disappearance of the lovely Jennie Brice-were enough to convince Mrs. Pitman that murder had been commited in her boardinghouse. The police. however. were another matter. Without a tangible body. there could be no official murder charge. Mrs. Pitman ran a respectable establishment and was not about to harbor a killer on the premises. If the police couldn’t see what was in front of their noses. then she would just have to take matters into her own hands. As the landlady. after all. she had the perfect excuse to do a little judicious snooping.

If you come by aeroplane. you will land at the V. C. Bird International Airport. Vere Cornwall (V. C.) Bird is the prime minister of Antigua. You may be the sort of tourist who would wonder why a prime minister would want an airport named after him-why not a school. why not a hospital. why not some great public monument. You are a tourist and you have not yet seen …”So begins Jamaica Kincaid’s expansive essay. which shows us what we have not yet seen of the ten-by-twelve-mile island in the British West Indies where she grew up.Lyrical. sardonic. and forthright by turns. in a Swiftian mode. A Small Place cannot help but amplify our vision of one small place and all that it signifies.
