The Year of the Hare - Arto Paasilinna What a delightful little book! A journalist's life is changed when the car he is riding in hits but does not kill a hare. He wanders into the forest to check on it, the driver of the car becomes inpatient and leaves, and so begins the journalist's decision to escape the life he doesn't much enjoy and begin a simpler one full of manual labor, reliance on the kindness (or not) of strangers, a deep connection to the beautiful land of Finland, and a deeper connection to a marvelous animal. He chooses to make his life in remote locations and meets a delightful assemblage of characters along the way. This is a book that will make you chuckle, smile, and just enjoy life.
