The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt.. Here’s one of the best crazed reworkings of the Western lately. DeWitt’s narrative voice is like a gleaming, ornamented rifle, but his aim is by turns funny and deadly.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"DeWitt has chosen a narrative voice so sharp and distinctive…it’s very narrowing of possibilities opens new doors in the imagination."

The New York Times

"With nods to Charles Portis and Frank Norris, DeWitt has produced a genre-bending frontier saga that is exciting, funny, and, perhaps unexpectedly, moving."
