An exquisite story collection  The Guardian


With this electrifying volume Galloway proves herself a truly powerful writer  The Independent


Dazzling    The Skinny 


This is a short-story collection to savour, by one of the foremost Scottish writers of her generation 

 Irish Times 


Utterly outstanding stories ... I felt I'd accompanied characters who were precious and vulnerable through watery emotional light and dark, and surfaced richer and stronger, supremely conscious of that balance between our strengths and our frailties. 

Northwords Now


Jellyfish should be taken in by slow osmotic indulgence, and not guzzled in a glut of page-turning ... acute observation delivers powerful characters you want to grasp and lift out of the pages, slap across the face or embrace empathically. In what seem to be very ordinary lives lie some extraordinary stories.

Dundee University Review of the Arts


Tales of the desperate and surreal   Spectator


Janice Galloway shows her genius for the ‘ouch’ principle: the collision of something vulnerable  with something sadistic 

Numero Cinq


Love, anger, loss, desire – there are passions on show which are palpable, and in which she stirs the senses like few writers can.
