Undermajordomo Minor, by Patrick deWitt

It seems to me that Hollywood film producers keep rehashing the same subjects and plots, which is why I rarely watch mainstream American-made films these days. I am thoroughly bored with sequels, prequels and other “quels” in films, and the same-old-same-old stuff. The same goes for novels. I prefer a fresh voice, an intriguing premise, a new idea and something that switches my imagination on, not off. So when I was deciding which Scotiabank Giller Prize author to read next, I went for Patrick deWitt and his oddly-titled novel Undermajordomo Minor. The novel is a quirky take on a classic setting and plot. So did it make my imagination take flight or did it bore me to tears? Well, I liked it, immediately. (Read more here…)
