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. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Jamaica Kincaid's "Mr. Potter". Her masterly novel. Published to enormous critical and popular acclaim, it is Kincaid's best work since her breakthrough debut collection, "At The Bottom of The River" (1983). 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). An absolute "must-have" title for Jamaica Kincaid collectors. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JAMAICA KINCAID TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0374214948. $20.00
