A Choreographer's Cartography

Written by Scottish Book Trust for Discovering Scottish Literature on no date provided

Raman Mundair [is a] daring and worldly writer who flits across genres and forms like they were dancefloor tiles.

She has staked her claim to Scotland’s heart, a heart as tender and troubled as her poetry, prose and playwriting. In her stunning, sensual and subtle collection, Lover’s Liars, Conjurers and Thieves, Mundair dances with words, dares and double dares, ram raids the reader’s heart, then does a runner. Later, her lines return like lost lambs in the night, but with the cry of wolves not far behind. A shape-shifter, voice thrower and stealer of breath, she shows that even in a place as cold as this northern outpost language can bubble and brim over.
