Reviews

I flat-out loved The Story of Edgar Sawtelle...Wonderful, mysterious, long, and satisfying: readers who pick up this novel are going to enter a richer world. I envy them the trip.

-- "Stephen King "

Wroblewski illustrates the relationship between man and canine (at times, from the dog's point of view) in a way that is both lyrical and unsentimental, and demonstrates an ability to create a coherent, captivating fictional world in which even supernatural elements feel entirely persuasive.

-- "New Yorker"

Edgar's tale takes you to the extremes of what humans must endure, and when you're finally released, you will come back to yourself feeling wiser, and flush with gratitude. And you will have remembered what magnificent alchemy a finely wrought novel can work.

-- "Amazon.com, editorial review"

A stunning debut...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.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

More than just dog lovers will find themselves deeply immersed in Wroblewski's assured prose and broad swatches of carefully rendered imagery. High literary art from a talent that bears watching.
