Review

“MacLeod is MacLeod, the greatest living Canadian writer and one of the most distinguished writers in the world. No Great Mischief is the book of the year – and of this decade. It is a once-in-a-lifetime masterpiece.”
Globe and Mail

No Great Mischief is one of the best Canadian novels I’ve read in years. It’s a tale of truth about people who care for one another and for the living world around them. A lament and a celebration, it will endure.”
–Farley Mowat

“This is a simply great novel. The simplicity lies in the device of the plot. The greatness lies in its scope, imagination, and execution.…His message beguiles, his prose captivates, and his narrative never loosens a deceptively gentle grip.”
–Glasgow Herald

“You will find scenes from this majestic novel burned into your mind forever.”
–Alice Munro

No Great Mischief is a lesson in the art of storytelling.”

“The work speaks of great loves…and tragic losses that will move readers in every corner of the world.”
Publishers Weekly

“A robust novel, celebrating all of the joys and tragedies life has to offer.”
Edmonton Journal

“MacLeod’s world, hard and real, has also the feel of resonant myth about it, enduring truths couched in pellucid prose.”
The Scotsman

“A great, hauntingly beautiful and enduring book.”
Kitchener-Waterloo Record

“Few readers will fail to be moved by No Great Mischief.”
Toronto Star

“[MacLeod’s] writing is of a quality that most writers can only dream of achieving.”

The Independent (U.K.)

From the Inside Flap

Alexander MacDonald guides us through his family's mythic past as he recollects the heroic stories of his people: loggers, miners, drinkers, adventurers; men forever in exile, forever linked to their clan. There is the legendary patriarch who left the Scottish Highlands in 1779 and resettled in "the land of trees," where his descendents became a separate Nova Scotia clan. There is the team of brothers and cousins, expert miners in demand around the world for their dangerous skills. And there is Alexander and his twin sister, who have left Cape Breton and prospered, yet are haunted by the past. Elegiac, hypnotic, by turns joyful and sad, "No Great Mischief is a spellbinding story of family, loyalty, exile, and of the blood ties that bind us, generations later, to the land from which our ancestors came.
