Island — The Collected Stories

Island — The Collected Stories

by Alistair MacLeod • 398 pages

Eloquent, humane, life-affirming, the stories in this astonishing collection seize us from the outset and remain with us long after the final page.
All of his short stories—including two never before published—in one magnificent book! Tensions within families; hard work in mines, forest, farms, homes; the lyric beauty of Cape Breton’s Scottish past—Alistair MacLeod focuses on the complexities and abiding mysteries at the heart of human relationships.
“We come away...with our own world view intensified, enlarged, enriched.”
—Jane Urquhart
