See Now Then at Sidwell Friends School
3825 Wisconsin Avenue NW
Jamaica Kincaid

Set in a small town in New England, See Now Then (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $24), is a haunting presentation of a family through time. As she lays bare the different perspectives of a couple and their two children, the author of the spare, lyrical Annie John and The Autobiography of My Mother questions notions of chronology and the neat beginning-middle-end of both life and narrative.
