Maxim Loskutoff

Anna Paige

Maxim Loskutoff was raised in small towns in the west. His award-winning stories and essays have appeared in numerous periodicals as well as anthologies in the United States and abroad. He lives in the Rocky Mountains of western Montana.

In an isolated region of Idaho, Montana, and eastern Oregon, an armed occupation of a wildlife refuge escalates into civil war. Against this backdrop, Come West and See shatters the myths of the West. The twelve stories in this collection expose the simmering rage and resentments of small-town America. Maxim Loskutoff’s debut short story collection was a co-winner with Thomas McGuane’s collection Cloudburst for the 2019 High Plains Book Award.
