really liked it
bookshelves: modern-american-fiction

A luminous, heartbreaking novel from Kincaid. A stream of consciousness narrative of the end of a marriage (as well as its beginning and middle). The past, present, and future blend together in the mind of Mrs. Sweet as well as her husband, and sometimes their children. While not uplifting at all, this was a novel that made me stretch and challenged me, and it's been awhile since I've read a nonlinear novel, but I thoroughly enjoyed the workout this one gave me. Kincaid is a great writer.
