Anyone read this? http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Sisters-Brothers-Patrick-deWitt/dp/1847083196/ref=tmm_pap_title_0 Picked it up in the library having read some good reviews and loved it so much I can't stop boring everyone about it. Tore through it in a few sittings and feeling a sense of loss. It's a black comedy Western, reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy but with absurdity and humour as well as all of the existential bleakness and horrific violence - combine McCarthy with Hunter S Thompson and you're getting there.. Such a funny cast of characters, hilarious set-pieces and incredible deadpan delivery and dialogue. Reminds me a lot of the Coen Brothers' films; it indeed would be ripe for an adaptation by them. If this is a taste of things to come, I can genuinely see him going on to be regarded as one of the cult classic American authors. Up there with Bukowski, Kerouac, Thompson, McCarthy and even Steinbeck. Anyone else? I gather his debut is nothing special.
