Coming Soon: 'Edgar Sawtelle' ... The Prequel

Without question, the best book I read in 2008 was David Wroblewski's first novel -- The Story of Edgar Sawtelle -- news of which made today's deals report from Publishers Marketplace.

Contained within the ample list of mostly non-fiction and foreign-rights transactions was the welcome report that Ecco, a HarperCollins imprint, plans to publish another book from Wroblewski, a prequel to The Story of Edgar Sawtelle.

Intent on crafting the tale into a trilogy, Wroblewski promises to focus the next installment on the life of John Sawtelle, grandfather of Edgar. I hesitate to say any more lest I give away too much about The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, which I can't recommend strongly enough.

Published in June, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle "has over 1.4 million copies in print and became an Oprah pick in September," says Publishers Weekly.

As with the first book, Wroblewski was again represented by Eleanor Jackson.
