Luath Press Ltd

Luath Press takes its name from Robert Burns, whose little collie Luath (Gael., swift or nimble) tripped up Jean Armour at a wedding and gave him the chance to speak to the woman who was to be his wife and the abiding love of his life. Burns called one of ' The Twa Dogs' Luath after Cuchullin's hunting dog in Ossian's Fingal. Luath Press was established in 1981 in the heart of Burns country, and is now based a few steps up the road from Burns' first lodgings on Edinburgh's Royal Mile.

Product Description

Details

Kokumo Rocks was born in Dundee in 1965, but was raised in the Fife mining village of Cowdenbeath. Kokumo's poetry explores the themes of love, race, freedom and imprisonment, and she does so with a sense of the importance of fun and humour - proud to include "the flabby bits". Kokumo - the name means "this one will not die" - lives by the motto "if you don't ask you won't get", and believes that passion can turn the "mundane into excitement". She has been inspired by poets including Maya Angelou, Benjamin Zephaniah and Ivor Cutler, but above all by 'growing up black in Scotland'.
