The Open Mic: Writers in Their Own Words with Elise Atchison
Jan 4, 2023 | Articles
My guest today, Elise Atchison, is a fabulous award-winning author whose debut novel, Crazy Mountain, was one of my favorite books of 2022. Crazy Mountain has been called “a grand tale of the power of wilderness to heal wounds—scars on the land and the troubled humans who live in it” and an examination of a singular key question: “How do we live in paradise without destroying the very thing we love?” Her writing has been called “artful, lyrical and deeply moving,” and I wholeheartedly agree. The new Open Mic is here!
