Collected Stories

by Janice Galloway
£8.99   paperback  Vintage (2009)

Collected Stories by Janice Galloway Comprising stories from her debut collection, Blood, and the critically acclaimed Where You Find It – this collection presents some of the best known and most loved works by one of Scotland’s ‘most gifted and original writers’ (Times Literary Supplement).
 
Each sharply observed, savagely accurate and brilliantly realised – 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.
