The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, David Wroblewski
Oprah added this book to her famous book club in September, but people were talking about Edgar Sawtelle before then. This surprising debut novel with its deaf mute hero is at once an intriguing take on Hamlet, and an un-put-down-able family saga. Oprah may have been on to something with this one.

Fans will be interested to find A Mercy also dovetails well with Morrison’s bestseller Beloved.
