  • Mesmerising... MacLeod...explore[s] the absurdities and dislocations of twenty-first-century life.

    James Moran, Tablet
  • Brilliantly unsettling.

    Alison Kelly, Times Literary Supplement
  • Alexander MacLeod's control of cadence and rhythm is so complete that it seems effortless. These stories offer a real pleasure which comes from the sense of life and emotional honesty in them... They contain a rare kind of truthfulness.

    Colm Toibin (on LIGHT LIFTING)
  • A thoughtful, beautifully crafted, big-hearted work.

    Anne Enright (on LIGHT LIFTING)
  • Taut to a point of richness, deft in the dark, with an understanding of narrative suspense that's somehow actually beautiful, Light Lifting is a powerful collection and the debut of a writer clearly a master of the form.
