Description:

SIGNED hardcover first edition - First UK printing. A collection of 12 stories. SIGNED on the title page. The first book by MacLeod to be published in the UK and the first hardcover edition of this revised version of his first book (7 stories were originally published in 1976, and reissued as a trade paperback by the Ontario Press in 1988 under the same title, but with stories from his second collection 'As Birds Bring Forth the Sun' and a new story 'The Island' included. ) On the basis of these few short stories, MacLeod was acclaimed as one of Canada's best writers, and his first novel in 1999 ,which won many major prizes, enhanced his reputation. These 12 stories, set in remote Cape Breton where Gaelic is still spoken, and where MacLeod grew up, were called "as regional and universal as the work of Faulkner or Chekhov" by Ondaatjee and described as masterpieces by Robert Stone and Russell Banks. Introduction by Joyce Carol Oates. 257 pp. Near fine in near fine dust jacket (inscription on half title page, corners very slightly bumped). An uncommon and important edition of this work.
