Alexander Macleod: Light Lifting
This book of short stories is worth a look. Here's what Quill & Quire had to say:
Light Lifting is one of those rare debuts: a breathtakingly good collection of short fiction that heralds the arrival of a significant new talent. It’s also the sort of book one worries won’t get the attention it deserves.
