Latest Oprah

 storyofedgar-202×300.jpgOprah’s latest book club pick has just been announced: it’s David Wroblewski’s The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, a  500-page first novel about a mute boy who communicates best with his dogs.  There’s been quite a bit of buzz about this book already. Barnes and Noble made it one of their seasonal picks for fall, and Janet Maslin in The New York Times called it “irresistable”: “Pick up this book and expect to feel very, very reluctant to put it down.”  You can find more about the book, including discussion questions, on Wroblewski’s web site.
