About This Item

New York: Ecco Press, 2008. Book. As New. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. First Edition/First Printing. Hardcover in unclipped dustjacket. 566 pages. A remarkable debut novel, passionate, absorbing, in language that transcends words. This is the true first printing. No NY Times blurb on top of cover. Not the Oprah Pick. Signed by the author on the title page, at the Lemuria Books in Jackson, Mississippi. Store book mark laid in. Light scuff to the bottom of the back dj flap, and tiny touch to front, otherwise a near fine dustjacket over a fine book. In Gayord book cover. As new. Unread. From my smoke-free collection. Ships in well-padded box..

Synopsis

David Wroblewski grew up in rural Wisconsin, not far from the Chequamegon National Forest where the novel is set. He earned an MFA from the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers. This is his first novel.

On Aug 5 2017, a reader said:
I found this book to be one of those rare finds in the life of an avid reader that stays with the you and impacts your life. I love the style and pace of writing in Edgar Sawtelle to be engaging and almost dream like. I read it in hardcover first and then listened to it 3 more times since then on Audible. Richard Poe's narration was one of the best I've heard in this format. The tone of his voice and the ability to sound younger, older, male and female was seamless. He clearly grasped the mood of this book. Overall I'm adding this work by Wroblewski to my small list of life time favorite books that I know I will share with others and read again and again over the years.
