As the title indicates, this is a book about familial ties and the endless desire to sever them. I had a really good time reading This Is Not About Me. Galloway creates a very memorable, powerful and vivid picture of her birth and early childhood into adolescence

As the title indicates, this is a book about familial ties and the endless desire to sever them. Galloway takes a conventional childhood in Saltcoats, Ayrshire – absent father, weak-willed mother, domineering sister – and transforms these laboured ideas into original and vital prose, crackling with tension, magic, insight and eye-popping characterisation. Galloway creates a very memorable, powerful and vivid picture of her birth and early childhood into adolescence. I know this is a memoir but I wonder how much are actual memory recalls and how much she has had to rely on other people filling the gaps?

Unfortunately I can not export them from iBooks. Also I don't see the folder in finder. The only possibility I found out so far, is to go to the folder within a terminal session. So I have many books in ePub format and in iBooks. Aug 14, 2016 2:09 AM.

This Is Not America" is a song by English singer David Bowie and American jazz fusion band Pat Metheny Group, taken from the soundtrack to the 1985 film The Falcon and the Snowman. It was released as a single in February 1985, reaching number 14 in the United Kingdom and number 32 in the United States. The instrumental song that "This Is Not America" is based on, was written by Metheny and Mays and is itself a song called "Chris", which was also included on the soundtrack for the film

After listening to Janice talk of the Art of Memoir at the New Zealand Writers Festival it was a must to discover the talent of this famed Scottish author - not only memoir but novels, poetry, drama, tv and a talented musician. Marvel at how she overcame all the
angst and miseries of a poor childhood with a struggling solo mother and a vicious older sister whose torments she endured silently.

Janice Galloway is a born writer. This autobiography of her early life really touched my heart. How could anyone who had such an emotionally starved childhood be capable of writing with such feeling and insight? I truly shared her ups and downs. Will definitely read more of her books

Told through the eyes of a sensitive and clever little girl, this story is sad but beautiful. A must read.

Delightful

Once I got into this memoir I felt really engaged. Brilliant detail and perception. Great relationships between family members and other characters that came in and out of the story.

I am a sucker for autobiographical books about childhood, because it is a time of such fluidity of response, and I am always captivated when a writer can distill the stuff of their own childhood, recount it as an adult, but still be able to hold the way the child saw the world.

I had never heard of Janice Galloway, so thanks, Amazon, for offering this as one of the Kindle deal reads.

Fascinating though it is to read childhood accounts of foreign lands and different times, there is something particularly interesting, to me, in those which have taken place around my own times, and in the UK. It can be shocking and salutary to read of how very different lives can be, yet in places close to home.

Galloway had a childhood which looked utterly bleak from the point of view of what life handed out - alcoholic father, poverty, drudgery, a school and home environment where ideas of nurturing, encouraging, celebrating the small developing person seem unbearably absent.

Yet, curiously, Galloway is not disconsolate, self-pitying, hate-filled or crushed. She writes with a generosity and even a celebration of her mother who was trapped by Janice's birth, and let her know that, and her aggressive, bullying, excitingly life filled sister. Lives which on one level could be seen as small, failed, dysfunctional are seen in a way which also acknowledges the unique, precious, loved and affirmed aspects of those lives

It isn't even that this falls into a `triumph of the human spirit' genre (though Galloway certainly seems to have climbed out of everything which could have crushed a less generous or frailer spirit) This is neither the story of `a survivor' nor is it the story of `a victim', but it is a beautifully written account of one particular child, growing up in a time (1960s) and a place (West Coast Scotland) told with wryness, humour, compassionate perception and warmth.

Galloway neither sweeps the awfulness under the carpet, trying to hide it with a soggy rictus grin of wisecracking sentimentality, nor does she wallow in the pain. Rather there is an acceptance of both her sensitivity and her tough, creative stoicism. She plays the cards she has been dealt rather than wasting time bemoaning the awfulness of the deal. This is a combination of the pragmatic and the poetic which I found utterly captivating

I have now bought the second volume (adolescence) and will be working my way through Galloway's fiction.
