9780099540397: Collected Stories

Comprising stories from her debut collection, Blood, and the critically acclaimed Where You Find It, this collection presents some of the best known works by one of Scotland’s “most gifted and original writers” (Times Literary Supplement).

Each sharply observed, savagely accurate and brilliantly realized, the stories offer revelatory glimpses into everyday lives — from an unwelcome act of kindness at a bus stop, an evening walk across a London bridge, a welcome but uncomfortable summer break, to a brutal lesson in trust. Here also are unflinching portrayals of relationships: the struggle to love against the odds, the overpowering yearning to communicate, and the extraordinary epiphanies where the world falls away leaving only the lovers.

These are painstakingly crafted stories: engaging, funny and terrifyingly true, from a master of the form.

About the Author:

Janice Galloway is a multi-award-winning writer. She was the TLS Research Fellow at the British Library in 1999, and she has been writer-in-residence at four prisons in Scotland.

Review:

“A book that can be felt on your pulses. Galloway is a literary endoscopist: she gets beneath the surface of life and exposes the nerves . . . Writing has rarely been so visceral.”
The Independent
