Anna North has written a captivating Western unlike any other,
with unique rhythms, dusty lands, and characters like new friends
brought in on high winds. A grand, unforgettable tale. -- Esme
Wang, author of THE COLLECTED SCHIZOPHRENIAS
I'm dazzled by this feminist Western about a world in which women's worth and right to live are determined by the vagaries of fertility. Set in an alternate past, one all too similar to our today, Outlawed is terrifying, wise, tender, and thrilling. A masterpiece.
Outlawed flips the script on the beloved Western genre and gives us the iconic heroine-on-the-run we deserve. Anna North is a riveting storyteller ... Reader, you are in for a real treat! -- Jenny Zhang, author of SOUR HEART
Fans of Margaret Atwood and Cormac McCarthy finally get the Western they deserve in OUTLAWED, but Anna North doesn't just reimagine a damsel-in-distress as her own savior. She plays with the promise and danger of the frontier, introducing us to an America we never knew-and one we know all too well -- Alexis Coe, author of YOU NEVER FORGET YOUR FIRST and ALICE+FREDA FOREVER
A moving and invigorating complication of the Western, highlighting chosen family, love, and survival among outcasts in another American timeline. As she mines the genre for vital new stories, North beautifully shines a light on our real past and conveys a warning for the future. -- Lydia Kiesling, author of THE GOLDEN STATE
