Staff Reviews


I wish I'd never read this so I could read it again. It's one of those Grade A+ Westerns (think Charles Portis) that explodes the cowboy 'n Indian thing into pebbles on the desert. Hilarious; heart-rending.

“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.”
