A Montana environmental attorney might seem like an unlikely novelist, but La Seur, who has studied at Oxford and Yale, draws on her seven-generations-deep Montana background to create the immersive setting of her first novel.

Carrie La Seur recommends
Among the Lesser Gods (2017)
"If Anne Tyler turned her attention to the inter-generational intrigue of small town Colorado, it might look something like Margo Catts' arresting debut. Drenched in lyrical language and blade's edge observation with a heartbreaking secret at its core, Among the Lesser Gods is an essential American love story for our nomadic, unrooted times."
Everything We Lost (2017)
"Lucid and dense with detail, Everything We Lost is Gone Girl meets The X-Files, a mesmerizing dive into the changeling depths of memory and grief."
The Past Is Never (2018)
Tiffany Quay Tyson
"You hold in your hands Stranger Things but with a satisfying ending. In the sort of cleanly tuned prose that makes another fiction writer happy, Tyson penetrates your imagination with characters and places so real they feel like your own suppressed memories. I'll never look at the Everglades the same way again."
