In her latest collection of stories, Janice Galloway turns her unflinching gaze on relationships: the struggle to love against the odds, the overpowering yearning to communicate, and the extraordinary epiphanies where the World falls away leaving only the lovers. Love is, of course, where you find it, and it is here in an evening walk across a London bridge, a chip-shop pizza, Derek's mouth, or ham sandwiches cut into hearts. A brilliant observer of human frailty and tenderness, Janice Galloway examines the moments where lives split like a stone, where people are healed or broken by a word or the touch of a hand. Savagely accurate, vivid and unsentimental, these are painstakingly crafted stories: engaging, caustic, funny and terrifyingly true.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Galloway's subject is love in all its quirky triumphs and sneaky defeats. Where You Find It confirms the originality and skill which wins her awards... Galloway has the all-important gift of knowing when her stories end, and lethally accurate powers of observation." -- Judy Cooke * Daily Telegraph *
"The writing can be felt on your pulses. Galloway is a literary endoscopist. She gets beneath the surface of life and exposes the nerves." -- Georgina Brown * Independent *
"She is a quite brilliant observer of the way relationships suddenly turn, of how a look, a gesture, a word can heal or hurt" -- Anthony Quinn * Harpers & Queen *
"Fuses a nerve- exposing honesty with deep compassion" -- Gavin Wallace * Scotsman *
