The Miracle Life Of Edgar Mint Summary

The Miracle Life Of Edgar Mint by Brady Udall

Half Apache and mostly orphaned, the adventures of Edgar Presley Mint begin on an Arizona reservation at the age of seven, when the mailman's jeep accidentally runs over his head.

Shunted from the hospital to a reform school to a Mormon foster family, comedy and trouble accompany Edgar - the irresistible innocent who never truly loses heart, and whose quest for the mailman leads him to an unexpected home.

This riveting picaresque novel has become an international best-seller.

The Miracle Life Of Edgar Mint Reviews

Original and sympathetic... Like John Iriving he draws credible, emotionally engaging characters, who find themselves afflicted by the oddest and most unexpected of mishaps... One of those rare novels that is so touching and so odd, you couldn't make it up * The Times *
One of the most enjoyable reads of the year * Time Out *
Peopled with beautifully-drawn characters and full of colour, drama and pathos, this is a superb first novel * Scotland on Sunday *
If this was a film it would be made by the Coen brothers. Quirky, charming and very funny * Mirror *
Very accomplished... Edgar is a brilliant creation * The Bookseller *
