In this luminous, bewitching new novel Jamaica Kincaid tells the story of an ordinary man, his century and his home. The island of Antigua come vibrantly to life under the gaze of Mr Potter, an illiterate taxi chauffeur who makes his living driving a navy blue Hillman along the wide open roads which pass the only towns he has ever seen and the graveyard where he will be buried. The sun shines squarely overhead, the ocean lies on every side and suppressed passion fills the air.
