About this event:
Larry Watson discusses and signs copies of his latest book titled Let Him Go.
In his ninth book, Watson returns to the mid-twentieth century American West—a vintage setting reminiscent of Montana 1948 and American Boy. Yet there’s something different—something more rugged and haunting—about this novel. In Let Him Go, Watson crafts a chilling narrative that explores the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself.
“The sort of book that puts the shine back on genre as an adjective to describe fiction.' —Kirkus
