Alison MacLeod is a 2013 Booker longlisted author of Unexploded.
'Unexploded is like a piece of finely wrought ironwork, uncommonly delicate but at the same time astonishingly strong and tensile; it's a novel of staggering elegance and beauty.' - The Independent
'Full of simmering tension, resentment and unexpressed passion... A bold, cleverly-told story from a writer who knows exactly what she's doing.' - The Observer
'An exploration of the xenophobia and neurosis unleashed in times of national crisis ... MacLeod remains one of the most astute… writing today.' - The Guardian
