About this book:

Features Anita Govan's poetry. Drawing together a combination of performance poems, this work includes a selection of Anita Govan's personal, and audience, favourite performance pieces.


...kick-started an interest in poetry not seen since the days of Hugh MacDiarmid and Dylan Thomas... a new cross fertilization between traditional and modern.  Scotland on Sunday, 2003

Anita Govan's poetry is original and resonant. Highly effective in performance, its varied emotional register, arresting imagery and lush lyricism are intrinsic qualities that are perhaps even better appreciated on the page.  Scottish Book Collector
