Jamaica Kincaid Biography

Kincaid lived with her stepfather, a carpenter, and her mother until 1965. In Antigua, she completed her secondary education under the British system, due to Antigua's status as a British colony until 1967.

She moved to New York at the age of 16 to work for a family as an au pair. She worked as a fact checker at Forbes magazine where she became close friends with Marsha Daniel of Raleigh, North Carolina who was working at Forbes as a reporter and her husband, the author, magazine publisher, and professor Myles Ludwig, who was then the editorial director of Art Direction magazine and later the creative director at Penthouse and Viva magazines, and Peter Ainsley who was the music critic for Women's Wear Daily and later worked as a writer for Time magazine. They spent a great deal of time together. Ludwig, Daniel, Richardson and Ainslie spent many weekends in the early 70s with Christopher Tree. Tree was a California hippie who played a variety of musical instruments in a performance act called Spontaneous Sound. Tree was living in a small house in New Paltz, New York with his then girlfriend on a non-working farm owned by an advertising executive. After Richardson had returned to university, she wrote to Ludwig asking for a job and he hired her to work at Art Direction. She went on to study photography at the New School for Social Research. She attended Franconia College in New Hampshire for a year and later worked at the New Yorker magazine. Read Full Bio >>
