992 pages; Blackstone Publishing
Familiaris is the long-awaited follow-up to Wroblewski's bestselling debut, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, which was an Oprah's Book Club pick when it was published in 2008. Some of the characters in this new novel will be familiar to readers of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle; in Familiaris, Wroblewski turns back the clock, telling the story of Edgar's grandfather, John, and the origin of the Sawtelle family farm—and their proprietary breed of beloved dogs.
