Please note that the new date for this event is Monday 18th February. 

Janice Galloway is one of Scotland’s most beloved and successful authors. The accolades that she has collected include the E. M. Forster Award, Creative Scotland Award, and the Saltire Book of the Year Award.

In this collection of short-stories, beautifully published by Granta,  Janice challenges David Lodge’s assertion that ‘literature is mostly about having sex and not much about having children; life’s the other way round’. Her multi-layered stories do indeed explore sex and sexuality, but also parenthood, relationships, the connections between generations, death, ambition and loss. They are rich in meaning, beautifully written, and emotionally affecting.  These are sixteen razor-sharp tales about the raw and poignant stuff of life, from one of Scotland’s most exciting authors.
