The Old West

I’m reading and roundly enjoying Patrick deWitt’s rambunctious western The Sisters Brothers.

A significant portion of the book takes place in California generally and San Francisco specifically in the year 1851. Therefore, I was delighted to see the Retronaut’s photos of Los Angeles from 1860-1886. It’s geographically and temporally close to what I’ve been reading the last two days, so cheers to them.

The Sisters Brothers also recently won The Morning News’s Tournament of Books. Those of you Wil Wheaton fans out there will be quite interested in his judgement.
