Liz Lochhead, former Makar (Scotland's Poet Laureate, 2011-2016) is a writer and performer of immense warmth, wit and tenderness. She is a natural storyteller, and her instinctive feel for rhythm and voice constantly delight. In A Choosing, she presents a crafted, personal selection of poems published over the last four decades. Love and memory are the driving forces behind these poems, which range in theme from language to landscape, heartache to history, writing to womanhood. At times poignant, at others funny, always heartfelt and full of verve, A Choosing is a celebration of one of Britain's finest contemporary poets.
