Edgar Sawtelle

June 13, 2009

Ye gads, I just finished reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski. It had such an impact on me! Dog lovers will love this and novel lovers will love this book too. It has a tragic Hamlet-esque ending, so beware. But the writing is beautiful and the dogs are perfection.

I'll be finishing The Distant Land of My Father by Bo Caldwell any day, another one I love. (I usually read two books at a time, one by the bed, one in the fam room) This one has lots of Shanghai during the Japanese invasion and then Communist rule, fascinating. This book helps you understand how the verb "Shanghaied" came about.

I am sharing a photo of my dear Violet, now gone for 3 years. She was also perfection.

  1. Edgar Sawtelle is next on my list! I've just started The Time Traveler's Wife in the meantime. I'm glad you are enjoying So Big, that story is dear to my heart.

    Violet is a beauty! Three years, but it never gets easier. We lost Alex back in 2002 (a 110 lb. German Shephard) at age 11. One reason I take so many pictures of Puff is that I realized after Alex was gone how few pictures we had of him ~ and he was the only family member with real looks ~ LOL

    You've been making some stunning pieces. I was hoping to see the ruffled cardi which I think is the second one you've made of that particular pattern. Love, love, love all your beautiful knitting.
