Review by

I found Sugar and Slate interesting because of the exploration of identity -- I've read books involving the intersection between Welsh and English before, but not intersections involving people from further afield: in this case, a father from Guyana.<br/><br/>On the other hand, I found it hard to keep hold of anything in the narrative. It isn't a story, as such, but a memoir, and because it's made up of memories, it flits from place to place and thought to thought. I'm too flighty myself at the moment to be able to get hold of that, so it was a difficult read for me in that sense -- despite the fact that in terms of the prose, it's easy enough to read.
