David Wroblewski

David Wroblewski is the author of the breakout novel, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, which he workshopped at the AWF’s Aspen Summer Words in 2005, leading to the book’s ultimate publication.

A selection of the Oprah Book Club and Barnes and Noble’s Discover Great New Writers program, and winner of the 2009 Colorado Book Award for Fiction, the novel also received high praise from coveted voices. Richard Russo said, “David Wroblewski’s got storytelling talent to burn and a big, generous heart to go with it.” The New York Times called the novel, “the most enchanting novel of the summer.” Stephen King saluted it as “wonderful, mysterious, long and satisfying.” Wroblewski grew up in rural central Wisconsin on a small and somewhat ramshackle farm. Over the years he has lived in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Austin, Texas; he currently makes his home in Colorado.
