9780749391737: The Trick Is To Keep Breathing
Críticas:

"A real achievement; its dialogue sparks and its voice is true. For Janice Galloway the trick is simply to keep writing" ( Scotsman)

"An account from the inside of a mind cracking up...its writing is as taut as a bowstring. From brilliant title to closing injunction, it hums with intelligence, clarity, wit; and, its heroine's struggle for order and meaning seduces our minds, exposes how close we all of us are to insanity. Joy, as Galloway's heroine reluctantly lets us know that she's called, is simply that dangerous step or two nearer the edge" ( Listener)

"This remarkably original work has gained Janice Galloway an almost immediate reputation as one of Scotland's most interesting serious prose writers" ( Glasgow Herald)

"Poignant and original...a wonderfully sensitive portrait of a woman who doesn't give up trying to find the "trick" to making life go on" ( Ms ?)

"Claustrophobic but extraordinary" ( Sunday Times)

"This is like a Scottish Catcher in the Rye. You actually feel you’re inside this woman’s head, it is that visceral. And having experienced a downward spiral myself, I so admire her accuracy in every detail" (Alan Cumming New York Times)

"Distressing but immaculately written" ( Observer)
