Jamacia Kincaid’s writing style

I am reading Lucy by Jamacia Kincaid. I really am enjoying the book so far. I’m half way through the book. I really like Jamacia Kincaid’s writing style it is really good. Her style is her own and she uses humor in a way that really works. I found myself laughing through a lot of it because she tells the story in a particular way that informs and engages you. My memoir teacher Edvige Giunta recommended I read Lucy and Annie John. I really like Lucy and would consider structuring my memoir the way Jamacia Kincaid structured Lucy with five chapters each chapter with a specific name. Like my first chapter would be called Old Brooklyn and so on…
