Janice Galloway – This is Not About Me – 2010/TBR

The Back of the Book: Janice Galloway is one of our greatest contemporary authors.  This is Not About Me is the story of her childhood, a world where words and music were joyful secrets and domestic life veered between absurdity and dissolution.

With a boozy father, staunch mother and wild, domineering older sister, Galloway grew up big-eyed and silent.  In this richly textured and darkly funny book, she evokes the hope and confusion of childhood, and describes how, slowly the beginnings of an unsuspected rage pushed a silent girl towards her voice.
