French Exit by Patrick deWitt

Staff Pick

If acerbic aristocrats, dead spouses reincarnated as cats, and impromptu cruises to Paris are of any interest to you, then, please, allow me to introduce you to Patrick deWitt’s third novel, French Exit. One of the things I most admire about deWitt’s writing is his ability to translate his signature wry humor and sharp eye to any time period or genre and absolutely nail it—French Exit is no exception. Set in contemporary New York, the novel follows the mother-son duo of Frances and Malcolm Price as they discover that they have run through their once-abundant finances. Hijinks ensue.
