While best known as a filmmaker, Margaret Tait (1918-1999) was also a medical doctor and prolific writer and during her lifetime she self-published three books of poetry and two collections of short stories. Personae is her unpublished manuscript written over a number of years from 1945 onwards.
‘Every reader coming to this book, a book full of curiosity, irreverence, calmness, anarchy, and bristling with Tait’s good argumentative life-force, will find themselves, one way or another, brought alive by it’. – Ali Smith, from the foreword to Personae
