Patrick DeWitt is one of Canada’s most prominent young novelists. Best-known for his blackly funny western, Sisters Brothers (soon to be a film!), he trades grit for foie gras in French Exit, a “tragedy of manners” that riffs on high society in New York and Paris. With a refreshingly dark take on the world’s most romanticized city, the story of a mother and son mired in scandal, codependency, and metaphysical lore promises to be the most demented novel you’ll read all year.
