In the tradition of great short-story writers like William Trevor, Alice Munro, and Russell Banks, a new collection by D. R. MacDonald, "a writer of heart-stopping beauty."--Alistair MacLeod. The unrelenting ache of the loss of a child. The haunting touch of a person you have loved and betrayed. The hollow desolation of everyday life. With All the Men Are Sleeping , D. R. MacDonald delivers a searing and muscular work. He deftly explores the misunderstandings between men and women, the nature of seduction and infidelity, the way geography shapes identity, and the heartache of longing--for home, family, and love. The mood is haunting, remarkable for its restrained passion and eloquence. Each of these stories stands alone, but together they offer a heartrending elegy for lost loves and time-forgotten places.

Industry Reviews

"Such great and captivating fluency with the physical, the natural and most particularly with the human realm of events. These wonderful stories have been a revelation to me, as well as a needed assurance that there are great writers working long and patiently to get things right and who suddenly (or so it seems) break forth to amaze us. Mr. MacDonald is an extraordinary writer." Richard Ford, winner of the Pulitzer Prize"
