What a Pair! Patrick deWitt & Deborah Willis
Hosted by Eric Volmers
Memorial Park Library, 2nd Floor
1221 2 St SW
Off-kilter. That might be the right adjective to describe how these two stylists approach genre. Or maybe out-of-this-world, especially when Patrick deWitt and Deborah Willis are the world builders. Outlandish? No, not really. Both are surprisingly grounded, even if the ground beneath their characters’ feet is always shifting in wickedly funny ways. Oh, hell. Why even consider labels when confronted with the originality fuelling The Librarianist and Girlfriend on Mars?
