In the second volume of her memoirs, the prize-winning author Janice Galloway reveals how the child introduced in This is Not About Me evolved through her teenage years. When she started secondary school, Galloway was still sharing a bed with her mother and was more excited by Latin and school orchestra than by boys. But as she struggled with the physical and emotional changes of adolescence, almost everything she thought she knew began to change. Combining visceral descriptions of puberty, sex and school-room politics with the story of a family's secrets, Galloway casts her gaze on the morals and ambitions of one small town, in writing that is personal, defiant and eloquent.

Reviews

"All Made Up" is an excellent sequel; its verbal playfulness, folksiness and wry, hard-won humour are an antidote to the neurosis and cynicism that can often characterise autobiographical writing by the authors of fiction - "Independent on Sunday" Warm, vivid, true - "The Times" Galloway remains a brilliant writer, capturing mood and character, time and place, with seeming effortlessness - "Guardian" A fierce but forgiving tragic-comedy of manners, morality and memory recovered - "The Times" Galloway is a mesmerising writer - "Scotland on Sunday" Janice Galloway is as good as they come - "Daily Telegraph" Galloway conjures up the atmosphere [of Saltcoats] with a loving hatred ... Her style is vivid and fluent - "Observer" A tour de force of artistic licence projecting the past through the lens of the artist's imagination ... The book is a testament to Galloway's talent ... The book is a wonderful curiosity shop of the mysteries of womanhood - "Scotsman"
