From an author who has been hailed for his “intelligence, heart, spirit” (Richard Russo, author’s Pulitzer Prize of Empire Falls), The Ice House follows MacKinnons to the abois as they weather the eventual loss of the family business, a serious medical examination diagnosis and slings and arrows of family discord.Johnny MacKinnon could be about to lose everything.The ice factory he married, he ran for decades, is facing devastating OSHA fines after a mysterious accident and may have to close down.Johnny’s only hope for subsistence is that someone in the Community has seen something, but no one seems to be coming forward.He has not spoken to his son Corran in Scotland since addiction to heroin Corran finally led Johnny to the breaking point.And now, after a fall on the factory floor, it looks like Johnny may have a brain tumor.Johnny was ordered to take it easy, but in some ways, let him think, what remains to be lost.Maybe it’s his last chance to close the gap with Corran- and to have some kind of relationship with the baby’s granddaughter, he’s never met.Spiritual and heart-wrenching in turn, The Ice House is a vibrant portrait of multi-faceted characters, extraordinarily human, who will not soon forget their readers.He firmly establishes Laura Lee Smith as a gifted voice in American fiction
