    French Exit PDF ¼ ↠ Epub pamyatnik.pro french book, exit book, French Exit ePUBI loved Patrick de Witt’s Undermajordomo Minor It was completely uirky and weird but seriously turned my crank Unfortunately while French Exit has a similar oddball sensibility this one fell uite flat for me The story focuses on mother Frances and adult son Malcolm As the story opens in New York Frances learns that all her money is lost after which she and Malcolm move to a friend’s apartment in Paris where a number of people drift into their world De Witt writes beautifully I love his use of language which has a deadpan oddball feel I didn’t even mind some of the surreal elements to the story – a dead father channeled through a cat as just one example But ultimately the story didn’t really engage me I wasn’t particularly charmed by the characters or interested in their fate And the story felt somewhat aimless – like a collection of odd events r

    French Exit PDF ¼ ↠ Epub pamyatnik.pro french book, exit book, French Exit ePUBPatrick deWitt has the remarkable ability to write brilliantly in different genres whether the fairy tale of “Undermajordomo Minor” the western of “The Sisters Brothers” or in his most recent book “French Exit” a comedy of manners The abundant wit satire and skewering of the wealthy made this an entertaining read but the infusion of death throughout the book detracted from what I anticipated based on the book’s subtitle I appreciate dark humor but at times it seemed to weigh down the sheer delight of the book Still it’s definitely worth reading for the smart and sophisticated humor sparkling dialogue the wonderful major and minor characters deWitt creates and his ability to write so convincingly from a woman’s point of view
