The One-Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson.
Swedish humor is NOT an oxymoron :>
Author and satirist Jonas Jonasson, has written a fictional history of an everyman, who does everything his own way, lives over 100 years, manages not only to be at major world events, but also, be intimately involved in them, changing the course of history to what we have studied at school. Funny we never learned that our jaunty, one-of-a-kind anti-hero, actually made it ALL happen!
Be ready to laugh out loud and wonder how our author made up this shaggy dog story. Wouldn't we like to live our lives exactly as we wished and manage to end up rich and with the perfect gorgeous mate?
Join us at the Lakeview Book Club to talk about it and have more laughs!
