"Edgar Sawtelle" on the big screen?

Edgar Debut author David Wroblewski has an unusual way of selling the film rights to his breakaway hit debut novel The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, reports Publisher's Weekly. David The 48-year-old author has requested that would-be producers pitch their ideas to him in person so he can gauge who actually deserves to own the rights. This probably means it'll be awhile before we see Edgar and his dogs on the big screen.

Apparently Francine Prose has no such idiosyncracies: PW reports that Bob Bookman of ICM took out rights to Prose's 13th novel Goldengrove, about a 13-year-old girl reeling from the sudden death of her older sister. One of Prose's earlier novels, Household Saints, was made into a movie with Lili Taylor and Tracey Ullman.
