To celebrate his marriage, David Best crafts a table which is passed down from generation to generation.
The table travels across continents and time, becoming the centrepiece for families and communities. It bears witness to their fights and their love-making, their coming together and their splitting apart. It journeys from England to a convent in Africa, to a hippy commune in Herefordshire, before ending up in present day south London. Here, Gideon, great-grandson of the original craftsman, confronts the family that he abandoned but now longs for.
funny and thoughtful tale spans six generations of the Best family and explores
belonging, identity and the things that mean the most.
Suitable for ages 15+.
