The Year of the Hare (Compact Disc)
January 2011 Indie Next List
“A modern day fable from one of Finland's most famous and popular authors, this books tells the story of a journalist and a hare. While on an assignment, Kaarlo Vatanen hits a hare with his car and breaks its leg. Rather than drive on, Vatanen rescues the hare and subsequently abandons his job, his wife, and all his possessions. Thus begins an adventure told in a funny, sweet, and loving parable of animal companions, rural life, and the rejection of modern consumer society.”
