Sift is the memoir of writer and poet Lawrence Sail’s formative years in post-war Exeter. Sail paints a wonderfully evocative picture of British life in the 1940s and 50s, while exploring the richness and bafflements of a child’s life.

‘Most families know the true history of time and chance – the sift of who and what survives, what is spoken of or glossed over; the stubborn objects outliving their owner’s passion for them; the oddities of fashion; the co-editing of memory, forgetfulness and the need to forget…’

 

‘The secrets of family history and childhood experience build to a powerful and moving evocation of a time largely lost.’ – William Bedford, The Warwick Review
