In MacLeod’s poems, a light shines on the unsung ways that people’s lives get rubbed together. MacLeod is inspired by sources as diverse as Alex Colville paintings and the “bedbugger.com” website. She also borrows words from how-to books; they still inform, but from an angle.
In Langille’s linked short stories—nominated for the Alistair MacLeod award—minor characters in one story become major characters in another. A man who abandons his wife after an accident re-appears from a different view—as a psychiatrist working to save another man’s life. Links are woven
among characters and across generations.
