Book Review: The Story of Edgar Sawtelle

David Wroblewski, The Story of Edgar SawtelleEdgar_sawtelle-cvr. A wonderful read, all in third person, told from several points of view including a dog’s. A big book with great characters. The dog Almondine broke my heart. The kid Edgar broke my heart. The dad broke my heart. Wroblewski conveys grief and its corollary, tenacity, in a most believable and moving way. This novel is a combination of gorgeous prose, compelling plot and sheer imaginative skill that holds the reader in thrall from start to finish.
