About This Item

New York: Ecco Press, 2008. First Edition, First Printing. Paper and Boards. Near Fine. A truly handsome First Edition, First Printing signed by the author on the title page. In fine condition save for minor bumping to spine ends and right lower corner, else fine. Rough cut fore edges, tightly bound, clean and bright interior throughout. Dust jacket clean and protected by archival cover. In near fine condition, save for light frosting and small chipping to extremities, all in all rather minor. Clean, unmarred spine. Flaps bright, clean and sharp cornered. This is Mr. Wroblewski's debut novel which Stephen King states is "wonderful, mysterious, long and satisfying: readers who pick up this novel are going to enter a richer world. I envy them the trip. I don't re-read many books, because life is too short. I will be re-reading this one." A wonderful copy!

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.
