Alyson Hallett


Available to buy from Mariscat Press.

The poems in Toots derive from the time when Alyson worked as a volunteer on Iona – a joyous, riotous sequence celebrating a joyous, riotous affair with an island and a wild Glasgow girl.

I LOVE her – as fresh as anything, the voice just jumps straight out at you. And the poems make me laugh too.
