Praise

"In these quiet, sturdy, lore-filled stories, D. R. MacDonald finds in a nook of Nova Scotia a hidden, moody world that is as rich and legendary as William Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County. All the Men Are Sleeping cannot be matched for the integrity of its vision, the elegance of its writing, and the psychological weight of its themes." — Ron Hansen

“MacDonald . . . said he set out to write short stories that were a match for the best among those he’d read himself. All the Men Are Sleeping is further proof that he’s achieved that ambition.” —
The Chronicle-Herald (Halifax)

All The Men Are Sleeping is one of our finest short story collections to come along in a long time… and is work not of promise but of fulfillment… These stories are nearly perfect. All The Men Are Sleeping is a rare and wonderful book that deserves to last.” — The Toronto Star

“Such great and captivating fluency with the physical, the natural and most particularly with the human realm of events. These wonderful stories have been a revelation to me, as well as a needed assurance that there are great writers working long and patiently to get things right and who suddenly (or so it seems) break forth to amaze us. Mr. MacDonald is an extraordinary writer.”– Richard Ford

“D. R. MacDonald is an exceptional writer.” — Alistair MacLeod

“These stories are breathtaking.” — Scott Turow

“These stories are about something, with people and feelings. They last in the mind, and if there is any justice, they could last on the shelf and in the tradition.” — Wallace Stegner

Praise for Cape Breton Road
“Bold, complex . . . as nearly flawless as they come.” — Toronto Star

“Gorgeous, muscular writing, with nothing sentimental about it.” — The Globe and Mail
