$22.95


Vatanen is a journalist in Finland. When the car he is riding in accidentally hits a wild hare, the injured animal scampers off and the car moves on, but without Vatanen. He has disembarked to find the hare and nurse it back to health. With the hare in his arms, Vatanen starts walking and finds himself on a journey of comic adventures and near misses. Embracing this life, Vatanen decides to quit his job, leave his wife, and spend a year in the wild. As the hare slowly heals, so too does Vatanen. This is a picaresque tale of finding happiness, simplicity, and meaning.
