When Gunnar Huttunen turns up in a small village to restore its run-down mill, its inhabitants are wary. Gunnar is big. He's a bit odd. And, strangest of all, he howls wildly at night. If Gunnar is different, then he must be mad, the villagers decide. Hounded from his home, he must find a way to survive the wilds of nature and the greater savagery of civilization. The Howling Miller is a dark fairytale of community, conformity and our place in the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Profound fable, enhancing the author's reputation as a wry eco-philosopher . . . Paasilinna's singular vision of freedom and persecution proves beguiling * * Guardian * *
A gem of a novel * * New York Times * *
The Howling Miller has the feel of an ominous Hansel and Gretel-style bedtime story - part myth, part fable and part novel - a form that has a funny way of bypassing the head and directly affecting the animal instincts. * * Los Angeles Times * *
A literary folk tale . . . Extraordinary * * Times Literary Supplement * *
It's a riotous novel, full of deadpan humour told in a comic style that, as the opening paragraph suggests, comes across like a fable. * * booklit.com * *

“The Howling Miller”

Not as good as the year of the hare, but still very good. Any Paasilinna is worth reading, though it's easier to get French translations than English ones.
