Yes, I’m having ANOTHER giveaway! This is a crazy month. I’m not sure what possessed me to have so many giveaways, but I think this is the last one for a while (except for perhaps a Comic Con giveaway!). Anyway, I’m happy to be participating in the Second Annual Western Roundup Giveaway Hop hosted by MK McClintock. My original plan was to focus on a fantasy western, but I remembered one of my favorite books from last year and decided to share that with you instead. One international winner will receive a paperback copy of:
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.
Oh my gosh you guys…I love this book so much. It’s not my typical genre, but it has everything I love in it—flawed characters (and I mean flawed), hysterically funny dialog, lots of nastiness (meaning violence)—and it’s got heart. You will fall in love with Eli and Charlie.
