Annie John by Jamaica Kincaid. My mother had arranged with a stevedore' to take my trunk to the jetty ahead of me. At ten o'clock on the dot, I was dressed, and. Annie John is a haunting and provocative story of a young girl growing up on the island of Antigua. A classic coming-of-age story in the tradition of The Catcher. Annie John by Jamaica Kincaid, , Penguin Books. Type of work. · Novel. Genre. · bildungsroman, Caribbean novel. Language. · English. Time and place.
Here is an asute depiction of the animosity between mother and daughter: My mother and I avoided each other, and it wasn't until over our supper of green figs, cooked with fish in coconut milk, that we looked at each other again.
We did our best to keep up appearances for my father's sake, but our two black things got the better of us, and even though we didn't say anything noticeable it was clear that something was amiss.
Annie's father is a background figure; but the provider, the earner. He is quietly supportive of Annie and demonstrates his love and affection for her by building her room; her bed and desk, anything he can provide according to his skills as a carpenter and furniture maker. I loved the descriptions of Antigua, the food - a special breakfast is salt fish, antroba, souse and hard boiled eggs, eaten with fresh bread from their baker.
Annie doesn't appreciate the richness of her childhood, or the unique and enchanting beauty that the island offers - to her it is just her normal background - only at the end, as she is leaving to go to England to train as a nurse, does she start to feel the strong ties of her home.
At seventeen like every adolescent, she is burning to leave everything that represents her childhood behind - for ever!
I loved this book. It made me cry, because everything Annie experiences is so universally true for any young woman growing up in an environment that cannot provide for her intellectual and emotional development, but this is such a normal process. Her individuality is balanced, however, by the contrast with Gwen her childhood friend, whose entire ambition is to be married to a boy she has known since she was a child.
Annie - tells her "Good Luck", but describes to the reader her true feelings: My reply to her was "Good Luck," and she thought I meant her well, so she grabbed me and said, "Thank you I knew you would be happy about it. We parted, and when I turned away I didn't look back. Some features of WorldCat will not be available.

Annie John Author: Jamaica Kincaid Publisher: New York: New American Library, Black women writers series. English View all editions and formats Summary: This is a magical coming-of-age tale, ripe with the special ambience of its tropical setting and sustained by Annie's far from naive awareness of the world around her.
Death, illness, and poverty intrude on the narrator's perceptive sensilibity from time to time, but even these experiences instruct her and expand her understanding of life and its shifting reality.

Annie finds her mother to be without fault and assumes that they will always live in total peace with one another. Annie feels fully betrayed when she observes that her mother plotted a sneaky scheme to get her to eat breadfruit. John suggests that Annie may one day have her own home. After the episode, Annie occasionally dreamt of it and sometimes visualized the ocean separating both her mother and father from her.
