My favorite book of 2018 (so far!), this is an intense and assured collection connected by a fictionalized version of the real-life takeover of the Malheur wildlife refuge by Oregon farmers. Loskutoff confronts mythologies of the West so deeply ingrained as to isolate beliefs that can’t be reconciled with modern ideas of governance and citizenship. A nuanced, funny, intimate consideration of an often forgotten region of America.
