Product description

Review

''This novel could simply depict a middle-age crisis, but it reaches beyond fantasy or fiction, becoming mythic in its universal themes. The story is inventive, satirical, and quite humorous. It is also refreshingly sentimental, [reaffirming] our connection with the animal world and our inherent need for happiness and freedom to maintain quality of life.'' --Booklist

''I love The Year of the Hare. . . Which of us wouldn't secretly want to live in a novel as fresh and as full of events as this one?'' -- Pico Iyer (from the Forward to the book)

''Paasilinna has been amusing Finns for thirty years and readers in twenty-five languages.'' -- New York Times

''His protagonists. . . are like Vatanen, strong -- some very strong -- eccentric and often loners. He makes sardonic fun of Finnish bureaucrats, German tourists, the Finnish military and selfish young people.'' --New York Times
