Today being Hunter S. Thompson's 75th birthday, I suppose there's no better time to finally write up my good read about The Rum Diary. I picked this up as a winter read to warm the bones, but it's so refreshing you may as well pick it up to cool down this summer. How do I explain that a book with little to no plot or conflict is actually extremely compelling?

With The Sisters Brothers, Patrick deWitt pays homage to the classic Western, transforming it into an unforgettable comic tour de force. Filled with a remarkable cast of characters–losers, cheaters, and ne’er-do-wells from all stripes of life–and told by a complex and compelling narrator, it is a violent, lustful odyssey through the underworld of the 1850s frontier that beautifully captures the humor, melancholy, and grit of the Old West and two brothers bound by blood, violence, and love.
