I picked this one up awhile ago. It was good, but it was a library copy and I had to return it. So I never finished. Maybe this time I'll give it a go. I hope a paperback edition comes out. I do so prefer paperback.
The writer lives in Colorado. For anyone who doesn't know, it's Hamlet set on a farm in the midwest. The Sawtelle's raise dogs. Sawtelle is a funny last name for the main character, because he is a mute. Get it? He can see but not tell. Telle. Oh so very clever.
