From the author of the award-winning The Sisters Brothers comes a dark, boozy, and hilarious tale from the LA underworld. A nameless barman tends a decaying bar in Hollywood and takes notes for a book about his clientele. Initially, he is morbidly amused by watching the regulars roll in and fall into their nightly oblivion, pitying them and their loneliness. In hopes of uncovering their secrets and motives, he establishes tentative friendships with them. He also knocks back pills indiscriminately and treats himself to gallons of Jameson's. But as his tenure at the bar continues, he begins to lose himself, trapped by addiction and indecision. When his wife leaves him, he embarks on a series of squalidly random sexual encounters and a downward spiral of self-damage and irrational violence. To cleanse himself and save his soul, he attempts to escape . . .

From the author of Booker Prize finalist The Sisters Brothers: “Viciously hilarious . . . deWitt’s portrayal of the drinking life is staunchly unromantic.” —Time Out New York In a famous, but declining, Hollywood bar works a barman, morbidly amused by the decadence of his surroundings. He quietly observes as the patrons fall into their nightly oblivion, taking notes for his novel. In the hopes of uncovering their secrets and motives, he establishes tentative friendships with a cast of variously pathological regulars. But as his tenure at the bar continues, he begins to serve himself more often than his customers, and the time he spends outside the bar becomes more and more painful. He loses his wife, his way, himself. Trapped by habits and loneliness, the barman realizes he will not survive if he doesn’t break free. And so he hatches a terrible, necessary plan of escape and redemption. “Sharp and bitter and funny” (Los Angeles Times), Ablutions steps behind the bar and goes below rock bottom for a brilliant new twist on the classic tale of addiction and its consequences “so punctuated with tiny, heartbreaking moments of grace—it becomes impossible to put the book down” (Portland Mercury). “Dark and provocative . . . ‘Ablutions’ has achieved something remarkable.” —The New York Times Book Review “Melancholic, sentimental, and very funny.” —Harper’s Bazaar (UK) “As heartbreaking as it is hilarious . . . an utterly compelling novel.” —The Believer

Winner of the Governor General's Award for Fiction, the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize, the Prix des libraires du Quebec and the Stephen Leacock Medal. Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, the Scotiabank Giller Prize, and the Walter Scott Prize. Hermann Kermit Warm is going to die: Eli and Charlie Sisters can be counted on for that. Though Eli has never shared his brother’s penchant for whiskey and killing, he’s never known anything else. On the road to Warm’s gold-mining claim outside San Francisco -- and from the back of his long-suffering one-eyed horse -- Eli struggles to make sense of his life without abandoning the job he's sworn to do. Patrick DeWitt, acclaimed author of Ablutions, doffs his hat to the classic Western, and then transforms it into a comic tour-de-force with an unforgettable narrative voice that captures all the absurdity, melancholy, and grit of the West -- and of these two brothers, bound to each other by blood and scars and love.

Single dad Isaiah is looking forward to a relaxing weekend with his daughter, Rebeca, when the power goes out. Isaiah thinks nothing of it at first. Little does he know that mysterious creatures are setting off a series of violent massacres all over the world. It's the beginning of the end. As the harsh realities of their violent new world sink in, Isaiah is determined to get Rebeca to safety. That safety may lie with the Guardians, strange superpowered beings sent to help humanity. The Guardians claim that the mysterious, violent creatures are humans corrupted by a powerful evil. Even with the Guardians' fabulous powers, they have no hope of defeating them. It will take humanity, united, to truly pose a threat to the darkness that is slowly taking over the world. The Guardians also have special instructions for Isaiah. As he sets off to help others isolated by the darkness, he will confront the now ruined and barren United States. Meanwhile, Rebeca decides that she will need to change drastically to be strong enough to fight in the upcoming war. As the two discover the secrets of this new world, Ablution shows the true strength of a father's love and mankind's will for survival.
