Talk Stories


Kincaid found a unique voice, at once in sync with the quintessential elite insider's magazine, and (though unsigned) all her own - wonderingly alive to the ironies and screwball details that characterized her adopted city. She meets Miss Jamaica, visiting from Kingston, and watches Tammy Wynette autograph a copy of Lattimore's Odyssey; she learns about the worlds of publishing and partying, of fashion and popular music. Talk Stories also records Kincaid's development as a young writer - the newcomer who sensitively records her impressions here takes root to become one of our most respected authors. Hide synopsis
