A Guardian Book of the Year and Chapters/Indigo Best Book

A bestseller in Scandinavia -- Doppler is the enchanting, subversive, and very unusual story about one man and his moose.

This beguiling modern fable tells the story of a man who, after the death of his father, abandons his home, his family, his career, and the trappings of civilization for a makeshift tent in the woods where he adopts a moose-calf named Bongo. Or is it Bongo who adopts him? Together they devote themselves, with some surprising results, to the art of carefree living.

Hilarious, touching, and poignant in equal measure -- you will read it with tear-stained cheeks and sore sides -- Doppler is also a deeply subversive novel and a strong criticism of modern consumer culture.

"Doppler is witty, sly and surprising. And it's slender enough, once you begin, you might never have to put it down." - January Magazine"A darkly comic fable." - Barry Forshaw, Independent"... wonderfully subversive, funny and original." - Sally Vickers, The Observer"A distinctive and original book, "Doppler" has clearly hit a nerve in Norway and is sure to ring equally numerous bells here." - Victoria Cooper, Red Magazine
