This is a refreshingly charming story of the steadfast, predictable journalist Vatanen who has a run-in with a hare—bunny, that is. After his car veers off the road, Vatanen goes into the surrounding woods in search of the culprit. He finds the hare, picks it up gently, and puts it into his jacket pocket. He turns in the opposite direction of his car and walks away from his current life, and into a series of wild and wacky adventures throughout the countryside of Finland. A quite funny, delightful, and encouraging read.
