Nigella Lawson's ten favorite books

One of TV host and food writer Nigella Lawson's ten best books, as shared at Vulture.com:
Lucy, by Jamaica Kincaid

This is a nuanced and powerful novel about growing up, the mother-daughter relationship, female identity, sexuality, cultural dissonance, privilege, poverty, and the pernicious legacy of colonialism. Kincaid’s style is both immediate and headily intense. A glinting, multifaceted work within relatively so few pages.
