I was very keen to read French Exit. I loved DeWitt's The Sisters Brothers (about to be released as a film starring John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix as the eponymous brothers).
Noun. French exit (plural French exits) (offensive) A hasty exit made without saying farewells to anybody.
DeWitt has a perfect turn of phrase. And the story is pure farce, it was a joy to read. However, it's quite possible I didn't actually like any of the characters, as the story shines a light on human behaviour at its most honest, but that didn't stop me enjoying the page-turner. The ending was the perfect embodiment of the title - a French Exit.
A refreshing and enjoyable read.
Thank you so much the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a complimentary electronic copy in return for an honest review.
