Customer Reviews

“The focus of [Enger’s] bright and breathing third novel feels mostly like life itself, in all its smallness and bigness, and what it means to live a good one.”

— Booklist (starred)

“Surprises and delights throughout; definitely worth waiting for.”

— Library Journal (starred)

“Enger deserves to be mentioned alongside the likes of Richard Russo and Thomas McGuane. VIRGIL WANDER is a lush crowd-pleaser about meaning and second chances and magic. And in these Trumpian times, isn’t that just the kind of book and protagonist we’re all searching for?”

— New York Times Book Review
