The Adoption Papers - Jackie Kay

'Jackie Kay has been gathering a reputation for a few years as an outstanding young talent in British poetry and playwriting... The Adoption Papers could well become a key work of feminism in action... a wonderfully spirited, tender and crafted contribution to Scottish writing, to black writing, and to the poetry of our time. It is a work of the utmost generosity and truth' - Alastair Niven, Poetry Review.

'These are brave, honest, unsentimental poems... Kay's poetry can be loud with pain and rage, but sometimes it's as though she whispers too, entering dreams, allowing herself a delicate imagery... This book is full of fresh, remarkable poetry; its rhythms sing from the page, demanding to be heard' - Elizabeth Burns, 
The Scotsman

'Warm, tough, painful and often very funny poems' - Fleur Adcock, 
Sunday Times.
