The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
What are you looking for in a book? Action? Suspense? A devastating fire? A faithful canine? An awkward run-in with a newly engaged ex-fiancée? If so, you’re in luck, because The Story of Edgar Sawtelle (penned by master storyteller David Wroblewski) has all of these.
This book is thick, but don’t be intimidated by its size. It’s truly a modern classic destined to end up on the bookshelf wedged between To Kill a Mockingbird and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
In this lovely tome you’ll find an idyllic story of Gar, Trudy, and their mute son, Edgar. Edgar communicates with sign language, which is fine because he only interacts with his mother, father, and dog, Almondine, who all understand ASL. Edgar lives a relatively quiet life, and wakes every morning to the sight of the dog kennel that has been in his family for generations.
