An extravagant, bankrupt widow, her overly-attached adult son and a suicidal cat: these are the brilliant oddball characters who take centre-stage in Patrick deWitt’s hilarious new novel.
“French Exit” sees Frances, Malcolm and Small Frank the cat (who is believed to be Frances’ deceased husband reincarnated), flee their Manhattan apartment and take a farewell voyage on a luxury ocean liner. From there they will land in the heart of Paris, where their paths will cross with a whole cast of bizarre and eccentric characters.
As devoted Patrick deWitt fans (both The Sisters Brothers and Undermajordomo Minor reign supreme on our favourites shelves), we are thrilled to have another highly original, darkly comic deWitt novel to rave about and even more excited to welcome Patrick back to Mr B’s to tell us all about it. Join us to chat Manhattan-socialites, clinically depressed felines and mummy’s boys this September!
