Tim Price'sSalt Root and Roeis a heartbreaking, humorous tale of love and family set againsta mythical backdrop. Set on the Pembrokeshire coast in North West Wales, identical twins Iola and Anest remain devoted to each other. Ageing fast, and with the time they have together more fragile by the day, they arrive at a desperate decision. Word of this reaches Anest's daughter Menna, who rushes to her long abandoned childhood home where her own ideas of love and compromise are tested to the limit. Inspite of the sombre themes ofdeath and bereavement, the writingis light,texturedand at times very funny:picking out moments of joy and sadness with seemingly effortless grace. Touching relationships and believable characterisationprovide a poignant backdrop to Salt Root and Roe, where pragmatism, exhausted lives and childrens' fairytales collide in thisexploration of grief, loss and acceptance.
