Lee Boudreaux Books is dedicated to publishing bestselling and award-winning literary fiction notable for unusual stories, unexpected voices, and a strong sense of place. Founded in 2014, its first list will appear in 2016.

Lee Boudreaux Books was begun in 2014 with the goal of publishing bestselling and award-winning literary fiction notable for unusual stories, unexpected voices, and a strong sense of place. The writers Boudreaux has published in the past have won or been nominated for the National Book Award, the National Book Critic's Circle Award, the Orange Prize, the Man-Booker Prize, and numerous PEN awards. A carefully curated mix, featuring established writers as well as those making their literary debut, these books have in common a mastery of language, commanding narrative momentum, and a knack for leaving us astonished, delighted, disturbed, and deeply affected, sometimes all at the same time.
