Hermann Kermit Warm is going to die: Eli and Charlie Sisters can
be counted on for that. Though Eli has never shared his brother''s
penchant for whiskey and killing, he''s never known anything else.
On the road to Warm''s gold-mining claim outside San Francisco --
and from the back of his long-suffering one-eyed horse -- Eli
struggles to make sense of his life without abandoning the job

Patrick DeWitt, acclaimed author of Ablutions, doffs
his hat to the classic Western, and then transforms it into a comic
tour-de-force with an unforgettable narrative voice that captures
all the absurdity, melancholy, and grit of the West -- and of these
two brothers, bound to each other by blood and scars and love.
