The Story of Edgar Sawtelle is one of those books that everyone likes. Most of the world, including The New York Times, Washington Post, The New Yorker, People, and this lady named Oprah, liked The Story of Edgar Sawtelle enough to call it one of their favorite books of 2008.  Getting people to like a nearly 600 page literary novel that mimics the structure of "Hamlet" is no simple task. Doing that with your first novel is like hitting a home run on your first time at bat. David Wroblewski is doing pretty good for a first-time novelist.

Edgar Sawtelle is a mute boy from Wisconsin who communicates and bonds with a group of dogs. His story is now available in paperback. An excerpt from the novel is available on Wroblewski's website. You can catch Wroblewski reading from the novel at the Margaret Mitchell House tonight at 7 p.m. More details at the MMH website.

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski. Ecco. $16.99. 608 pp
