Auction #35 Signed copy of The Sisters Brothers by Patrick Dewitt

This book has been getting a lot of buzz lately. And from the reviews and online comments, looks like it’s living up to it!

Book description:

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.
