Kincaid, Jamaica. MR. POTTER. New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2002. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 195 pages. As New/As New.

The author's fourth novel. One of the most important literary events of the year 2002. Published to enormous critical and popular acclaim, it is Jamaica Kincaid's best work since her breakthrough debut collection, "At The Bottom of the River". The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Kincaid's body of work is proof that you can bring your roots with you and turn them into great stories and characters. The eponymous protagonist is both her most memorable character since Annie John and the vehicle through which she makes the reader see her beloved Antigua with fresh eyes. "About as perfect as it's possible to be" (Carolyn See). A "must-have" title for Jamaica Kincaid collectors. This title is no longer in print as a hardcover even though it went into multiple subsequent printings and is now collectible. This is one of relatively few copies of the true First Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the finest living American writers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JAMAICA KINCAID TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0374214948. $30.00
