"Alexander Macleod's work is brash and brainy and his voice is rich, harsh, and powerful. He pays attention to the battles of the sexes, the battles of the strip mall and rest stop, the battles of the bottle, and the battles of child rearing, uncannily detailing the stresses, obligations, and joys in tactile, loving observations."-Mark Jarman

In Light Lifting, Alexander MacLeod offers a suite of darkly urban and unflinching elegies for an industrial city and community on the brink. These are stories of work and its bonds, of tragedy and tragedy barely averted, but also of love and beauty and fragile understanding.
