"Gerda Stevenson’s fabulous Quines (Luath Press) – a groundbreaker of a book." Jackie Kay, BEST SUMMER BOOKS, 2018, THE OBSERVER.

“An inspiring collection, celebrating Scottish women throughout the ages. There are nearly 60 poems here, ranging from queens to fish-gutters and, chronologically, from a 5000-year-old reconstructed head in a Shetland museum to the only recently departed Tessa Ransford of the Scottish Poetry Library...a mammoth undertaking, but Stevenson is more than up to the task, taking on a variety of styles, voices and perspectives.…not only an absorbing and uplifting book but educational too.” Sunday Herald.
