Product description


‘I read it last summer and I could not stop. It’s also a first novel, a true labour of love.’ Audrey Niffenegger, Guardian (Books of the Year)

'Stately and expansive narrative. Wroblewski's story builds on foundations provided by past literature but has an originality all its own.' Nick Rennison, Sunday Times

‘It must be the closest anyone came in 2008 to writing the “Great American Novel”.’ Guardian (Books of the Year)

‘[A] most enchanting debut novel. A great, big, mesmerising read. Pick up this book and expect to feel very, very reluctant to put it down.’ New York Times

‘A big-hearted novel you can fall into, get lost in and finally emerge from reluctantly. Tender and suspenseful … grand and unforgettable.’ Washington Post

'I flat-out loved “The Story of Edgar Sawtelle”.’ Stephen King

‘An incredible journey that seems to have everything going for it; the beauty and flair of a great literary novel, the scale and pacing of a fantasy epic, and the absorbing thrill-ride of any glorious rites-of-passage adventure from our collective childhoods.’ Sunday Business Post

Scotsman (Books of the Year)

‘Remarkable.’ Uncut magazine (Books of the Year)

About the Author
