Watch the Trailer for Patrick deWitt’s New Novel, Undermajordomo Minor

We’re big fans of Patrick deWitt, author of The Sisters Brothers and an OG Electric Literature magazine alum. But even if we were strangers to his work, this tantalizing trailer would be


enough to make us spine-tingly with anticipation for his upcoming novel. If Joanna Neborsky’s stunning animation is any indication, Undermajordomo Minor will prove to be the “triumphant ink-black comedy of manners” we never knew we always wanted. Just don’t make us say that three times fast.
