    Kim McKimmie with Patrick deWitt

    The Sisters Brothers author Patrick deWitt held a reading recently at Powells in Portland, that Kim McKimmie attended. He has written four novels to much critical acclaim and Kim read his second novel, The Sisters Brothers. She became a fan and was happy for Mr. deWitt to hear that his book was made into a major motion picture that is currently playing in cinemas Nationwide. The film stars John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix as the two notorious assassin brothers, Eli and Charlie Sisters, and together they get caught up in the California Gold Rush

    His first book, Ablutions (2009), was named a New York Times Editors' Choice book.

    His second, The Sisters Brothers (2011), was shortlisted for the 2011 Man Booker Prize, amongst many other prestigious awards.

    His third novel, Undermajordomo Minor, was published in 2015. The novel was longlisted for the 2015 Scotiabank Giller Prize.

    Patrick deWitt read from his just-published book, French Exit, which is a brilliant and darkly comic new novel.

    Powell’s Events description says it best:

    “Frances Price – tart widow, possessive mother, and Upper East Side force of nature – is in dire straits, beset by scandal and impending bankruptcy. Her adult son, Malcolm, is no help, mired in a permanent state of arrested development. And then there is the Price’s aging cat, Small Frank, who Frances believes houses the spirit of her late husband, an infamously immoral litigator and world-class cad whose gruesome tabloid death rendered Frances and Malcolm social outcasts. Putting penury and pariahdom behind them, the family decides to cut their losses and head for the exit. Brimming with pathos, French Exit is a one-of-a-kind “tragedy of manners,” a send-up of high society, as well as a moving mother-son caper, which only Patrick deWitt could conceive and execute.”

    He was born on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and later lived in California and Washington state. He lives in Portland, Oregon.
