Diamond Donnie Ross is at the centre of this remarkable story of a coal-mining community in Cape Breton in the 1920s. Black Around the Eyes evokes the men and women, the joys and grief, the stark beauty and harsh struggles of that time and place.

This moving, searing novel, at times hilarious and at others heart-rending, has been out of print for far too long. Moose House is proud to make it available again, in a revised edition which corrects some errors in the original and includes a new foreword by the author.

Jeremy Akerman's memoir, Outsider, includes a revealing passage about the writing of Black Around the Eyes. It is also available from Moose House Publications.
