Doppler has a nice house, a nice wife and a nice job. But Doppler isn't happy.

'Wonderfuly subversive, funny and original' Observer.
'A darkly comic fable' Independent.

When his father dies, Doppler decides to leave everything behind and start a new life in the forest. There, deep amongst the trees, he reconnects with nature, ponders the meaning of life, and bonds with a baby elk called Bongo.

Sweet, funny and subversive, this is a charming fable about the pressures of modern existence and finding friends in the strangest of places.

'Dead-pan comedy' Financial Times.
'An absurdist, hilariously subversive novel'Saga.
