Staff Reviews


The new novel by the author of Peace Like a River is every bit as masterful, yet possessed of its own quiet magic. Kites, for example--the crafting and flying of them--play a transcendent role. A kind of homegrown odyssey, the story follows the owner of a movie theater in a small Midwestern town, the mysteries of his past, and myriad relationships he has with his fellow citizens and a handful of intriguing outliers.

“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.”
