ARCHIVE – Patrick deWitt

Patrick deWitt is the author of two critically acclaimed novels: Ablutions and The Sisters Brothers, which won the Governor General’s Literary Award for Fiction, the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize and the Stephen Leacock Medal, and was short-listed for the Man Booker Prize and the Scotiabank Giller Prize. His work is characterized by reinvention and reimagination of familiar subjects. He lives in Portland, Oregon, but his novels are set in anywhere from modern LA to the Old West. His latest work is Undermajordomo Minor.

Undermajordomo Minor

Undermajordomo Minor is a love story, an adventure story, a fable without a moral and an ink-black comedy of manners. International bestselling author Patrick deWitt’s new novel is about a young man named Lucien (Lucy) Minor, who accepts employment at the foreboding Castle Von Aux. While tending to his new post as undermajordomo, he soon discovers the place harbours many dark secrets, not least of which is the whereabouts of the castle’s master, Baron Von Aux.
