"Set against the unforgiving landscape of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, these stories are all concerned with the complexities and mysteries of the human heart. Steeped in memory and myth and washed in the brine and blood of the long battle with the land and the sea, they celebrate a passionate engagement with the natural world and a continuity of the generations in the face of transition in the face of love and loss."
"A lifetime's achievement in more than one sense" Sunday Times "Startling in their simple perfection" Sunday Tribune "Provokingly singular and rare, an island of richness" Guardian "Beautifully crafted stories: elegiac, honest, proud, and both eloquent and taciturn, like their subjects...a wonderfully talented writer" Margaret Atwood "Rarely does a great writer offer himself to us with an oeuvre so complete" New York Times Book Review
