Island

Alistair MacLeod’s Island is 16 short stories so beautifully written and so heartachingly true that I had to stop after each one to think. [Most] are connected to Cape Breton in Nova Scotia where [characters] fish, mine, farm, or keep a lighthouse. This area …is MacLeod’s childhood home and continuing vacation spot.

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.
