Born mute, speaking only sign, Edgar Sawtelle leads an idyllic life with his parents on their farm in remote norther Wisconsin. David Wroblewski is a master storyteller, and his breathtaking scenes - the elemental north woods, the sweep of seasons, an iconic American barn, a fateful vision rendered in the falling rain - create a riveting family saga, a brilliant exploration of the limits of language, and a completely readable modern classic. "Edgar Sawtelle is a boy without a voice, but his world, populated by the dogs his family breeds, is anything but silent. This is a remarkable story about the language of friendship - a language that transcends words." - Dalia Sofer
