Time News Speaks About This Veteran Computer Programmer and Best Selling Writer

David Wroblewski best selling writerToday, I was awed by the news story by Time Magazine about David Wroblewski, whose best selling fiction book, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle is currently on the New York Times best seller list, currently at the number one position.

Time says Wroblewski is one of the first computer programmers to be a best selling fiction writer. This has some fascination for me, since I was a computer programmer myself and have quite a bit of affinity toward fiction writing.

Wroblewski’s novel concentrates on a mute, who takes refuge in Wisconsin woods after his father’s death.

The novel was chosen by Oprah Winfrey through her most popular Oprah Winfrey Show. And that might have proved to be a factor behind the success of the novel.

Edgar Sawtelle is a character brewed over a decade. Stephen King and Richard Russo already endorsed this work. The work was conceived during the 90’s when Wroblewski enrolled to an MFA program. The great success can be attributed to the long-term work he put into the book, and the promotion schedule given by the publishers, Harper Collins.
