Queering the Space of Home: Counterpublics, Sexuality, and Transnationalism in Kincaid's 'My Brother'
A literary criticism of the memoir "My Brother," by Jamaica Kincaid is presented. It explores the iconography of the home and other social spaces in Kincaid's narrative concerning the death of her brother from AIDS-related illness in Antigua. The author uses queer theory to explore Kincaid's anxieties regarding the sexual politics of social space and the implications of her brother's disease.
