About the Book

When transposed into the botanical world cherished by writer Jamaica Kincaid, the creolization that has long characterized Caribbean cultures can be reread as the art of grafting. In this volume, the notion of grafting—whether of plants, of human beings, or of literary genres—is the basis for the critical readings of the diasporic traces that crisscross Jamaica Kincaid’s oeuvre, here, specifically in the more recent works: My Garden (Book):; Among Flowers: A Walk in the Himalaya; and See Now Then, with connections also to The Autobiography of My Mother.
