Wow!
Ms. Kincaid, I loved (note the tense) your books; this one is clearly coming too close to the bone for you. Even the names of the characters is woebegone. You have probably never been described as "sweet" this lifetime, and the creation of two truly MYTHICAL (Greek, no less) children is just the cream of the jest. Unfortunately, the joke goes stale very quickly. Suggestion: read Nora Ephron for an entertaining look at a marriage gone bad, and she is readable, thank God.

Not her best work and rather tedious to get through. Kincaid's "Mr. Potter", "A Small Place", and "Annie John" are much better.
