'Memories, stories and truth'

Written by Jaqueline Saville for The Tip-Tap of Monkey Keyboards on Friday, April 3, 2015

We shuttle back and forth in time and place, from the south coast of England to the south coast of Sri Lanka, from the present day to points in Savi’s childhood or the more recent past. Revisiting a place you remember doesn’t necessarily match up with revisiting the memory, and if you’ve been away for long enough are you a visitor or going home? Memories, stories and truth – how closely are they connected, really?
