Alistair MacLeod

Much to our delight, Alistair MacLeod agreed to travel across the Atlantic from his home in Ontario to be with us at the 2009 Book Festival. One of the foremost novelists and short story writers, he is a master craftsman, an exquisite stylist whose work is epitomised by his award-winning novel No Great Mischief. In this event he discusses his life, work and the importance of his Scottish heritage with Richard Holloway.
