"At the Bottom of the River" by Jamaica Kincaid

“Reading Jamaica Kincaid is to plunge, gently, into another way of seeing both the physical world and its elusive inhabitants. Her voice de ella is, by turns, naively whimsical and biblical in its assurance de ella, and it speaks of what is partially remembered partly divined. The memories often concern a childhood in the Caribbean–family, manners, and landscape–as distilled and transformed by Kincaid's special style and vision of him. ”
