About the Author

D. R. MacDonald was born in Cape Breton and grew up mostly in the United States. He has received two Pushcart Prizes, an Ingram Merrill Award, and an O. Henry Award for his short fiction. His first novel, Cape Breton Road, was called a jewel of literary craftsmanship by Scott Turow, a book of heart-stopping beauty by Alistair MacLeod, and became a national bestseller. His second novel, Lauchlin of the Bad Heart, was longlisted for the Giller Prize. MacDonald teaches at Stanford University and spends his summers in Nova Scotia.


Praise for The Ice Bridge

The Ice Bridge is a breathtaking novel about the landscape of love and spirit and a particularly special place, a book of considerable intrigue and remarkable beauty. --Scott Turow

[The Ice Bridge] transcends clichΓ©s in its depiction of an isolated community contending with a magnificent and at times overwhelming natural landscape. It also grapples with the global socioeconomic forces undermining communities of all sizes with far more subtlety and insight than most urban prose reminiscent of D. H. Lawrence, MacDonald captures the almost hopeless struggle to comprehend the consciousness of another person and another time. --Quill & Quire
