Annotation:
In this enchanting debut novel, a mute boy with the ability to communicate with dogs becomes suspicious of his uncle after the death of his father--a plot readers of HAMLET will find familiar. However, there is much more going on in this novel than merely a reenactment of Shakespeare's play: THE STORY OF EDGAR SAWTELLE is full of strange magic, lyrical prose, and a love of animals that are uniquely its own. Author David Wroblewski toiled on the novel for ten years, and the result is a rich and lovingly crafted book with a timeless classic quality. Selected as one of the 2008 Best Books of the Year by Publishers Weekly.

Praise

"[T]he most enchanting debut novel of the summer. Written over a decade by the heretofore unknown David Wroblewski and arriving as a bolt from the blue, this is a great, big, mesmerizing read, audaciously envisioned as classic Americana." - Janet Maslin 06/18/2008

"[A] classic coming-of-age story with an ironic twist. Sustained by a momentum that has the crushing inevitability of fate, the propulsive narrative will have readers sucked in all the way through the breathtaking final scenes." (starred review) 02/18/2008

"A stately, wonderfully written debut novel...Highly recommended." 04/01/2008
