Edgar Sawtelle in Paperback!

Yes, it's finally here, for those of you who have been waiting for the paperback version of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, by David Wroblewski. When this debut novel came out in hardcover last year, it was a smash hit. Janet Maslin, in her review in the New York Times, wrote "A great, big, mesmerizing read....Pick this book up and expect to feel very, very reluctant to put it down." The New Yorker had this to say: "In this debut novel, 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." And the Chicago Times called it "easily the best work of fiction ever written about dogs." And while I'm on the subject of dogs, don't forget about the "Telling Tales" fundraiser for AnimalAid at Furever Pets on Friday. Click here for details.
