Shortlisted for the Booker Prize
Hermann Kermit Warm is going to die. The enigmatic and powerful
man known only as the Commodore has ordered it, and his henchmen,
Eli and Charlie Sisters, will make sure of it. Though Eli doesn't
share his brother's appetite for whiskey and killing, he's never
known anything else. But their prey isn't an easy mark, and on the
road from Oregon City to Warm's gold-mining claim outside
Sacramento, Eli begins to question what he does for a living-and
whom he does it for.
With The Sisters Brothers, Patrick deWitt pays homage to the
classic Western, transforming it into an unforgettable comic tour
de force. Filled with a remarkable cast of characters-losers,
cheaters, and ne'er-do-wells from all stripes of life-and told by a
complex and compelling narrator, it is a violent, lustful odyssey
through the underworld of the 1850s frontier that beautifully
captures the humor, melancholy, and grit of the Old West and two
brothers bound by blood, violence, and love.
