Staff Reviews


This is a quiet novel based in a Midwestern town with kites, baseball, fishing, a movie theatre and wonderful characters that you can root for.  I liked this novel for the quotidian nature of it; things were happening but they were small, every day happenings.  And I wanted all the good things for Virgil Wander!  I also loved Enger’s debut novel Peace Like A River.

“From the fated flight of Virgil Wander’s Pontiac into the frigid waters of Lake Superior to an encounter with Rune, an enigmatic kite enthusiast searching for word of a long-lost son, and other interactions with the citizens of Greenstone, Minnesota, Leif Enger’s new novel is a most welcome, albeit quirky, story of words and people lost and found. Lovers of Peace Like a River, rejoice! Enger is back with another enchanting and enriching tale of community and revival, with his ever-deft touch of magic and grace. A perfect remedy for those whose hearts ache from our present reality, Virgil Wanderis a treasure to be shared with all readers.”
