New books you can borrow this month

There are three fictional and three memoir books to choose from this month – all very different and creative; two poetry books, one by Iona Lee and the other by Liz Lochhead; a biography of Jane Haining; an examination of the italian artist Artemisia Gentileschi; travel to Iceland; and Amanda Thomson’s Scots Dictionary.
