The Adoption Papers by Jackie Kay
Jackie Kay uses three viewpoints to tell her autobiographical account of being a black baby girl adopted by white Scottish parents: the adoptive mother, the birth mother and the daughter. The other poems in this, her first collection (1991), address various issues related to racism and queer identity. Spirited, feminist and insightful.
