Alistair MacLeod (1936―2014), raised in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, was an acclaimed Canadian novelist, short story writer, and academic.Review:
“[MacLeod's] entire oeuvre . . . [is] a new land that [readers'] imaginations can seize like a manifest destiny.”
- Thomas Mallon, The New York Times Book Review
- Margaret Flanagan, Booklist
“You will have scenes from this majestic novel burned into your mind forever.”
- Alice Munro
“His writing, graceful and elegiac, has the resonance of Steinbeck, and the violence is as raw and unchecked. But his pictures―of the men, the land and their fate―are more fragile, like old photographs pulled from a wallet. Endlessly creased, they will fall apart unless you unfold them with great care and patience―which MacLeod does beautifully.”
- Los Angeles Times
