Salt is an extraordinary tour de force by one of the pre-eminent literary presences in the Caribbean, a novel which explores like none before it the intermingling of cultures that is the contemporary West Indian experience.’

Although relatively slim, the novel packs in an astonishing quantity of historical and social detail. There is an element of political didacticism, but it is offset by Lovelace’s humorous tone and his seductive, painterly boldness with the language.
