Read full description of the books:
The superbly crafted stories collected in Alistair MacLeod's "As Birds Bring Forth the Sun and Other Stories" depict men and women acting out their "own peculiar mortality" against the haunting landscape of Cape Breton Island. In a voice at once elegiac and life-affirming, MacLeod describes a vital present inhabited by the unquiet spirits of a Highland past, invoking memory and myth to celebrate the continuity of the generations even in the midst of unremitting change.
His second collection, "As Birds Bring Forth the Sun and Other Stories" confirms MacLeod's international reputation as a storyteller of rare talent and inspiration. "From the Trade Paperback edition."
