Freight Books has signed a short story collection from writer Janice Galloway.

Publishing director Adrian Searle bought world English language rights in the collection, titled Jellyfish, from Juliet Pickering at Blake Friedmann.

Searle said: “I’m delighted to be publishing Janice Galloway’s latest collection of stories, Jellyfish. She is a writer I have read with admiration from the beginning of her career. She is undoubtedly one of the most significant voices in contemporary British literature and a master of the short form.”

Jellyfish will feature stories on the themes of parenthood, relationships, sexuality and madness.

Galloway is a Scottish writer of novels, short stories, prose-poetry, non-fiction and libretti. She won the Saltire Book of the Year award in 2002 for her novel based on the life of German musician and composer Clara Schumann, Clara (Vintage).

Freight Books will publish Jellyfish in a limited edition demi hardback in June 2015.
