Description - Contemporary Scottish Women Writers by Aileen Christianson
This collection of essays, by both new and established critics, provides readings of many of the Scottish women writers working in Scots and English today.

It includes new readings of Janice Galloway and A.L. Kennedy and examines the work of poets such as Carol Ann Duffy and Kate Clanchy, dramatists such as Sharman Macdonald and Sue Glover as well as writers, including Jackie Kay, who cross genre boundaries.
