Omtale fra Den Norske Bokdatabasen

Oregon, 1851. Brødrene og leiemorderne Eli og Charlie Sisters er på vei til California for å gjennomføre et oppdrag de har fått av den mystiske Kommandøren. Målet er gullgraveren Hermann Kermit Warm, som har oppdaget en revolusjonerende ny metode for å finne gull. På veien kommer brødrene opp i bisarre og voldelige episoder, og mens Charlie rydder enhver hindring av veien får Eli stadig større skrupler.

Omtale fra forlaget

Oregon, 1851. Eli and Charlie Sisters, notorious professional killers, are on their way to California to kill a man named Hermann Kermit Warm. On the way, the brothers have a series of unsettling and violent experiences in the Darwinian landscape of Gold Rush America. Charlie makes money and kills anyone who stands in his way; Eli doubts his vocation and falls in love. And they bicker a lot. Then they get to California, and discover that Warm is an inventor who has come up with a magical formula, which could make all of them very rich. What happens next is utterly gripping, strange and sad. Told in deWitt's darkly comic and arresting style, THE SISTERS BROTHERS is the kind of Western the Coen Brothers might write - stark, unsettling and with a keen eye for the perversity of human motivation. Like his debut novel ABLUTIONS, THE SISTERS BROTHERS is a novel about the things you tell yourself in order to be able to continue to live the life you find yourself in, and what happens when those stories no longer work. It is an inventive and strange and beautifully controlled piece of fiction, which shows an exciting expansion of Dewitt's range

Sitater fra dette verket

Looking back at the camp I thought, I will never be a leader of men, and neither do I want to be one, and neither do I want to be led. I thought: I want to lead only myself.
