5.0 out of 5 stars A great fearless little book, 9 Jan 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Trick Is to Keep Breathing (Scottish Literature) (Paperback)
'The Trick is to Keep Breathing' is one of my favorite books. It is beautifully constructed: a gripping story, powerfully told. The prose is deceptively simple, using a variety of forms (including the typesetting itself) with elegance and poignancy. Although the subject is bereavement and loss, it is ultimately about forgiveness and recovery. And quite a journey. Very moving. Highly recommended. BTW: has also been adapted for stage and radio.

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 worldbookclub@bbc.co.uk 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.

Best wishes,

Emma
