Though Eli has never shared his brother's penchant for whiskey and killing, he's never known anything else. On the road to Warm's gold-mining claim outside San Francisco -- and from the back of his long-suffering one-eyed horse -- Eli struggles to make sense of his life without abandoning the job he's sworn to do. \n\nPatrick DeWitt, acclaimed author of Ablutions, doffs his hat to the classic Western, and then transforms it into a comic tour-de-force with an unforgettable narrative voice that captures all the absurdity, melancholy, and grit of the West -- and of these two brothers, bound to each other by blood and scars and love.

Book Description Soft cover. Condition: New. "A gorgeous, wise, riveting work of, among other things, cowboy noir.Honestly, I can't recall ever being this fond of a pair of psychopaths." -David Wroblewski, New York Times bestselling author of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle "A masterful, hilarious picaresque that keeps company with the best of Charles Portis and Mark Twain.a relentlessly absorbing feat of novelistic art." -Wells Tower, author of Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned "The Sisters Brothers is dark, dark, and funny, both ha ha and strange.and you'll love the characters you meet along the way." -Tom Franklin, New York Times bestselling author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter Patrick deWitt, a young writer whose "stop-you-in-your-tracks writing has snuck up on the world" (Los Angeles Times), brings us The Sisters Brothers, a darkly comic, outrageously inventive novel that offers readers a decidedly off-center view of the Wild, Wild West. Set against the back-drop of the great California Gold Rush, this odd and wonderful tour de force at once honors and reshapes the traditional western while chronicling the picaresque misadventures of two hired guns, the fabled Sisters brothers. The most original western since the Coen Brothers re-interpreted True Grit-you've never met anyone quite like The Sisters Brothers. Seller Inventory # 007324

Book Description Soft cover. Condition: New. Hermann Kermit Warm is going to die. Eli and Charlie Sisters can be counted on for that. Though Eli has never shared his brother's penchant for whiskey and killing, he's never known anything else. On the road to Warm's gold-mining claim outside San Francisco -- and from the back of his long-suffering one-eyed horse -- Eli struggles to make sense of his life without abandoning the job he's sworn to do.DeWitt spins a violent, lustful, hung-over and humorous odyssey through the underworld of the 1850s frontier. Doffing his hat to the classic Western, he then transforms it into a comic tour-de-force with an unforgettable narrative voice that captures all the absurdity, melancholy, and grit of the West -- and of these two brothers, bound to each other by blood and scars and love.
