    In See Now Then, the brilliant and evocative new novel from Jamaica Kincaid (her first in 10 years), a marriage is revealed in all its joys and agonies. This piercing examination of the manifold ways in which the passing of time operates on the human consciousness unfolds gracefully, and Kincaid inhabits each of her characters - a mother, father, and two children living in a small village in New England - as they move, in their own minds, between the present, the past, and the future.

    What would have made See Now Then better?

    Oh, dear...it was a little hard to follow, and I was alone in the car, driving a long distance, so it shouldn't have been. Plus I simply did not connect with the characters at ALL. I returned it to Audible and got another book that was more suited to me.


    What was most disappointing about Jamaica Kincaid’s story?

    I thought it sounded good and was ready to listen to it for a 3-day drive...


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from See Now Then?

    I did not get very far before I realized I really did not want to hear this story. I did not finish it.
