This book, by the author who brought us the wildly popular Born to Run, is much more than the cover lets on. If you need a total change of pace, and to be brought fully away from our moment of despair, you need this book, about donkey-racing, animal husbandry, and making the impossible real. Community in an unlikely band of misfits rules the day, but watch out, it might make you want to get a donkey. Pairs well with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Twitter feed.
