#flashreview: The Sisters Brothers

The Sisters Brothers

TITLE | The Sisters Brothers

AUTHOR | Patrick DeWitt

STAR RATING | 4.5

ABOUT | An unforgettable tour de force tale — wearing a cowboy hat — about a pair of mismatched brothers bound by blood, violence, and love.

WHAT I LOVED ABOUT IT | The complex and compelling narration, and the eccentric cast of characters. Funny, brutal, and ultimately beautiful — I will read anything that DeWitt writes.

WHAT I DIDN’T LOVE ABOUT IT | That there isn’t a Coen brothers film adaptation.

WHO I’D RECOMMEND IT TO | Anyone who doesn’t like Westerns. This redeems the genre in every way.
