Lasting out grief,
This review is from: The Trick is to Keep Breathing (Paperback)
How can you heart keep beating when the man you love is dead, a man who you're not even permitted to grieve for because although he had left his wife it is she who claims his body and is named at the funeral. This is the story of the ironically named Joy 'lasting' this ordeal after her lover drowns, her complete breakdown in the face of the shattering of her world consigning her to a psychiatric ward, and the men and women who love her and despite her continue to reach her. Reveals the true horror of grief and the dangers of wrapping a life around a single person. Deeply moving, Galloway traces a narrative through a blasted emotional landscape with skill and feeling.

Hi there, I have just read your review of 'The Trick is to Keep Breathing'. Would you be interested in putting a question about the book to the author Janice Galloway at a recording of the BBC World Book Club on the World Service? If you emailed it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org we could read it out to Janice Galloway during our recording on the 24th July 2014 or even ask if you'd like to speak directly to her on the telephone...?
Many thanks and we look forward to hearing from you.
