"I flat-out loved The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. In the end, this isn't a novel about dogs or heartland America, it's a novel about the human heart and the mysteries that live there, understood but impossible to articulate.... I don't reread many books because life is too short. I will be re-reading this one."

A novel by David Wroblewski

...Nothing quite compares to my experience of reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. This debut.... is one of the most stunning, elegant books I have ever read.... what can deservedly be called a great American novel.
     — Lisa Jennifer Selzman, Houston Chronicle

I am completely smitten.... The most hauntingly impressive debut I’ve read all year.... Edgar might be silent, but his story will echo with readers for a long time.
     — Yvonne Zipp, Christian Science Monitor

The Great American Novel is something like a unicorn – rare and wonderful.... Yet every few years or so, we trip across some semblance of one.... The Story of Edgar Sawtelle... [will] leave you crying for more....
     — Elle Magazine

The best book I’ve read in a long time. It is a class apart—a 570-page literary novel that has as much emotional punch as anything I have ever read.
     — Michael Fraser, Publishers Weekly "Galley Talk"

The scope of this book, its psychological insight and lyrical mastery, make it one of the best novels of the year, and a perfect, comforting joy of a book for summer.
     — O Magazine

The most enchanting debut novel of the summer... this is a great, big, mesmerizing read, audaciously envisioned as classic Americana.... Pick up this book and expect to feel very, very reluctant to put it down.
Janet Maslin, New York Times

It's the must-read of the summer...
     — People Magazine

Grand and unforgettable.
     — Ron Charles, Washington Post Book World (cover review)
