Lagomorph by Alexander MacLeod
(performed by Alexander MacLeod)
A short story told from the perspective of a father who brings home a rabbit for a family pet, “Lagomorph” explores the significance this critter takes on for the narrator as the family’s dynamic shifts and fractures.
Originally published in the literary magazine Granta, “Lagomorph” was one of the winners of the 100th O. Henry Prize in 2019. The special edition book of “Lagomorph,” designed and printed by Andrew Steeves of Gaspereau Press, won the 2021 Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Award, whose jury praised the story for “stay[ing] with you long after you put it down.”
Lagomorph is also available from Gaspereau Press as a special edition hardcover.
