The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
Author: David Wroblewski
Publisher: Anchor Canada
Price: $22.95 (Paperback)
There’s something rotten in the state of Wisconsin in this latter-day interpretation of Hamlet by first-time novelist Davie Wroblewski. Edgar Sawtelle may have been born without the ability to speak, but its his observations that propel his tragic tale. Raised on a dog breeding and training farm, Edgar has found that canines really are man’s best friend. After watching his father die, he suspects foul play; but revenge gone wrong leads him to escape on a journey into the backwoods with a trio of dogs. His evasion is short-lived, as he must decide whether to keep running or return to face the consequences.
