Virgil Wander (Paperback)
Virgil is still alive and out of the hospital after a snowy crash which left his car at the bottom of Lake Superior. While convalescing, he meets a Norwegian kite flyer who is seeking information about his son who has been missing for 10 years. Virgil Wonder is a joy, and reminds us why we love to read about small towns and their quirky citizens.— From Diana's Picks

“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.”
