Beschreibung

This is a slightly confusing issue; the 'true first printing' was in June, and that has no top line on the jacket and was issued with a different ISBN. This second state of the first edition - I said it was confusing! - was rushed out with four changes, but with the same publishing number line. It differs by having a different ISBN number and the words 'NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER' across the top of the jacket, and an Oprah's Book Club seal attached at the bottom right hand corner. The third difference is with the text block. This is the issue with a trimmed leading edge. So, the true first is the one issued in June, with an untrimmed leading edge and no additional lines on the jacket. However, this is therefore a more affordable 'first' than the true first. It contains, of course, the same utterly wonderful and beguiling story. The author has signed this on the title page. The jacket is protected. No former owner marks, but I guess this might have been read, but with great care and respect. Language: eng Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng.

Book by Wroblewski David

Críticas:

."the most enchanting debut novel of the summer...a great, big, mesmerizing read, audaciously envisioned as classic Americana.... One of the great pleasures of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle is its free-roaming, unhurried progress, enlivened by the author's inability to write anything but guilelessly captivating prose." -- Janet Maslin, New York Times

"I doubt we'll see a finer literary debut this year than The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. David Wroblewski's got storytelling talent to burn and a big, generous heart to go with it."--Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Empire Falls

"The author's spellbinding first novel...is nearly impossible to put down."--Kirkus Reviews, First Fiction Special

"The Story of Edgar Sawtelle is a wooly, unlikely, daring book, and wildly satisfying."--Mark Doty, New York Times bestselling author of Dog Years

"A stunning first novel...a ranging story that is part coming of age, part mystery and part tragedy on the order of Hamlet...Wroblewski executes with elan, building an addicting tale peopled by fully dimensional characters. He carries the reader, with authority and confidence, on a thought-provoking ride."--Denver Post

"Whether you read for the beauty of language or for the intricacies of plot, you will easily fall in love with David Wroblewski's generous, almost transcendentally lovely debut novel...the scope of this book, its psychological insight and lyrical mastery, make it one of the best novels of the year...."--O Magazine

"A stately, wonderfully written debut novel...[Wroblewski] takes an intense interest in his characters; takes pains to invest emotion and rough understanding in them; and sets them in motion with graceful language... a boon for dog lovers, and for fans of storytelling that eschews flash. Highly recommended."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"The most enchanting debut novel of the summer....a great, big, mesmerizing read, audaciously envisioned as classic Americana...One of the great pleasures of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle is its free-roaming, unhurried progress, enlivened by the author's inability to write anything but guilelessly captivating prose.--New York Times

Don't let the book's massive size fool you: This is a good old-fashioned coming-of-age yarn. Grade: A--Entertainment Weekly

"This luminescent story has the kind of sprawling, wide-lens focus that readers think of when they talk about the so-called 'great American novel.'"--Capital Times (Madison, WI)
