• You will find scenes from this majestic novel burned into your mind forever

    Alice Munro
  • One of the great undiscovered writers of our time

    Michael Ondaatje
  • The novel is close to being a masterpiece. The characters, the light and the weather, the story itself - its beautiful tone and shape, its harsh and melancholy music - stay with you for days afterwards. The novel is simply breathtaking in its emotional range

    Colm Toibin, Irish Times
  • Exceptional... The book is pervaded by the humour and colour; intensely vivid, and very, very moving

  • Alistair MacLeod is a wonderfully talented writer

    Margaret Atwood
