The first novel in 10 years from Enger, “Virgil Wander” is an enchanting and timeless all-American story that follows the inhabitants of a small Midwestern town in their quest to revive its flagging heart. 

Enger was raised in Osakis, Minnesota, and worked as a reporter and producer for Minnesota Public Radio for nearly 20 years. He lives on a farm in Minnesota with his wife, Robin, and two sons. He is the author of the bestselling novels “Peace Like a River” and “So Brave, Young, and Handsome.”
