Cassie and Rona. Rona and Cassie.

Two women on a driving holiday in Northern France.

A caustic, coruscating and deeply funny account of morality, dysfunctional relationships and women abroad, Foreign Parts is that rare hybrid: a strikingly original novel about real life, told with accuracy, compassion and a truly saturnine delight.

Review:

"The book reassures that no matter how many times you've done something or been somewhere, the humiliations remain as burning, the pleasure as sharp as ever" (Independent)

"A funny, original, stinging-as-a-nettle, soothing-as-a-dockleaf read" (Observer)

"A carefully observed, caustic portrait of two opposites - one prickly, one plodding - and their troublesome but enduring friendship" (New York Times)

"A pleasure from start to finish" (Guardian)

"Every detail...is described with the accuracy of an X-ray and the urgency of poetry" (Penelope Mortimer Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

Life on the road observed with a biting sensibility for the awkward and the joyous:a tale as comic as it is poignant.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. Ships From Canada. 262 pages. From Booklist: In recent years, Galloway has been touted as one of Scotland's most talented fiction writers. Her awards to date^--New York Times Notable Book of the Year, the E. M. Forster Award, and, with this book, the McVitie Prize and Scottish Arts Council Book Award--demonstrate the praise she has garnered. The book award author phenomenon, that situation in which winning one or two of the "'"right"'" awards leads to winning other, not necessarily earned, honors, is not likely to occur with Galloway. She is no hoax and not merely lucky. Galloway's talent is evident in the risky form of her novel; in the abrupt, darkly humorous, and subtly profound mingling of internal thought and character dialogue; and in the potency of her cynical, yet empathetic vision. There are shades of Virginia Wolff in her experimentation with novel form and blending of dialogue with stream of consciousness (undistinguished by anything like punctuation). A reader also senses.

There are shades of Virginia Wolff in her experimentation with novel form and blending of dialogue with stream of consciousness (undistinguished by anything like punctuation). A reader also senses here a bit of Harold Pinter's knack for the unsaid as that which is important. Although the story simply follows two women on a road trip through France, this plot is secondary in importance. The insight and power of this novel lie in the women's peculiar relationship, and in their reactions to both the foreign surroundings and the foreign aspects within each other. Janet St. John--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Publishers Weekly, starred review 7-24-95 "Travel is a backdrop for a sharp, funny, tender but never maudlin dissection of what it means to be friends. "--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Women's Review of Books 3-96 "What a relief it is to read a novel that explores pressing issues for heterosexual feminists with intelligent levity instead of didactic heaviness. Shout it from the rooftops and charter flight desks: this novel is not just brainy and wise, it's funny! .Much of what makes the journey through a Galloway novel so rew.
