Review: Circus-Apprentice, by Katherine Gallagher

..., [this book] quietly restores my faith... it has been written by a woman who has travelled. ...[there is] worldly-wisdom, real life experience, a sense of her having lived... throughout, there is evidence of Gallagher having what can only be described as a painterly eye...[she demonstrates] a very definite appreciation in her observations of the aesthetic, of form, colour, texture, space, character - she is very much a creator of imagery, of impression.
