This Is Not About Me (Paperback)
|Author: Janice Galloway|
From the Publisher:
Janice Galloway is one of our greatest contemporary authors. This Is Not About Me is the story of her childhood, a world where words and music were joyful secrets and domestic life veered between absurdity and dissolution.|With a boozy father, staunch mother and wild, domineering older sister, Galloway grew up big-eyed and silent. In this richly textured and darkly funny book, she evokes the home and confusion of childhood, and describes how, slowly, the beginnings of an unsuspected rage pushed a silent girl towards her voice.
