Staff Reviews


The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt is a surprising, droll Western about family, friends, and the pursuit of happiness. But for the two most notorious gunmen in the west, the path to a happy life is not so simple, or happy.

“This is a modern take on the Old West that is part classic Western, part Coen Brothers, part Homer's Odyssey, and part murder ballad. This wry, weird, and wonderful tale tells of hitmen Eli and Charlie Sisters as they meet funny and tragic characters on their journey to kill a man. Along the way, Eli examines both what has brought him to this point and the violent world around him. As with many adventures, that of the Sisters Brothers is really a quest to find some kind of home.”
