See Now Then - Jamaica Kincaid

This is my first book by the author, and it makes me wonder what her other books are like. I did like the way she portrayed the way people in a longterm relationship can hold simultaneously good and bad feelings about those they love - that strikes me as very true! On the other hand, this slim volume is written in a stream of consciousness style that isn't my thing, if I'm being honest. The repetitious pages-long paragraphs got old. So while I am not completely on board with the writing style, this book was enough to make me curious enough to read other books by this author, so I think I will do so.
