The first novel in ten years from award-winning, million-copy bestselling author Leif Enger, Virgil Wander follows the inhabitants of a Midwestern town in their quest to revive its flagging heart.
So Brave Young and Handsome
“So Brave, Young, and Handsome is a sharp and brainy redemption tale, with all the twists and turns and thrills of a dime-store western. . . . [Enger’s] laid claim to a musical, sometimes magical and deeply satisfying kind of storytelling.” —Veronique de Turenne, Los Angeles Times
Peace Like a River
“You don’t see novels like this one very often. Peace Like a River reminds a reader of Kent Haruf’s Plainsong or even Norman MacLean’s A River Runs Through It. It’s got that pure American loss of innocence theme, that belief in and fascination with miracles, that insistence on the goodness of men outside of the law.” –Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times Book Review
