    1 thought on “Blood

    1. The tales in Blood take real life and filter it through dense, sometimes fragmented prose, until it becomes… more concentrated, one might say. In the title story, for example, a girl has her tooth removed by the dentist, and her desire to stanch the bleeding comes to represent something of a wish to hold herself in, as it were. ‘Plastering the Cracks’ begins with the straightforward premise of a woman calling in workmen to repair a room, but treats its material with a twist of absurdity, a [...]

    2. The title story of this collection has the most realistic description of a trip to the dentist since McTeague or Huysman's Against the Grain. Great story, too. This collection is marked by a compressed, and vibrant language; as well as continuous experimentation with form. The willingness to explore non-traditional approaches to the story is refreshing, and combined with the compression of language, makes this a real find. Not sure what to make of some of these pieces, but it’s a pleasurable r [...]

    3. I think I've read one too many sensitive middle-class novels in which sensitive people behave sensitively towards each other in their charming houses that reflect their taste and sensitive characters, so this was a blast of fresh, fierce Scottish air.Working class and experimental, these stories are on the edge in both form and content, and the only uniform aspect is the quality, which is as high as it gets.There's wit and charm, but also helplessness and insoluble problems.One story is more or [...]

    4. Blood is a collection of short stories by Scottish writer, Janice Galloway. These stories are told from a distinctly female point of view and examine the interplay between men and women, often the effect that men have on women and specifically the effects on women of living in a male dominated society. Galloway's writing is superb. She takes chances another writer would not take or would take but fail and her peculiar strength is in conveying a wealth of emotion in a few simple words. These twen [...]

    5. Sometimes I have trouble reading stories this short, because my attention span doesn't allow for me to read more than one or two at a time and then I spend three weeks on a 180-page book that I could have read in a day or two. But it's good! Some stories (the title story, and a couple of others) are better than others (ie. the longest story) but overall it's definitely worth reading. Start with The Trick Is To Keep Breathing, though, if you haven't read her before.

    6. this was a completely different book for me to read as its all short stories. all the stories are very harsh, some rather sad some grim. it was interesting to read something that was outside my usual box but i dont think i will return for more

    7. Re-reading I think. Pretty sure I read this collection of short stories when it first came out. Cannot be sure though. Liking it so far.
