Alistair MacLeod has been called "Cape Breton's ambassador of fiction". A retired professor at the University of Windsor, he grew up in Nova Scotia, and the landscape of his fiction, as he calls it, is the province and its proud and spirited people. These come alive in his celebrated short stories and in his novel, No Great Mischief, which, among many other awards, earned the richest prize in fiction, the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. Deeply committed to Canadian literature, he volunteered for decades as the fiction editor of the Windsor Review and is renowned for his generosity and for his influence on other writers.
