Two long-distance runners race a cargo train through the darkness of a rat-infested tunnel beneath the Detroit River. A drug store bicycle courier crosses a forbidden threshold in an attempt to save a life, and a young swimmer conquers her fear of water only to discover she's caught in far more dangerous currents. An autoworker who loses his family in a car accident tries to separate his life from the internal combustion engine forever.

Light Lifting, Alexander MacLeod's long-awaited first collection of short stories, offers us a suite of darkly urban and unflinching elegies for a 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.

    " Awesome. Everyone of the short stories was a little masterpiece unto itself. I loved how they were a little slice of the drama, cutting into a part of it at the beginning, and leaving off to the imagination at the end. "

    " Loved the story about the track runners, would give that story 5 stars. "

    " I loved these poignant stories but I did not like the abrupt endings. They left me dissatisfied and reluctant to read the next story for fear of being left hanging again. But I kept going anyway because they were so good :-) "

    " I love MacLeod but I found this mix of short stories a bit off. Some I quite enjoyed while others I skipped over at the halfway point because I just couldn't get into them. "
