The 100-Year-Old Man...

...who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared.
by Jonas Jonasson, Sweden, translated by Rod Bradbury.
A big celebration is in the works, but 100-year-old Allan Karlsson goes on the lam from the nursing home, running from the police and a gang of criminals. Laugh at his alternative history where he witnessed some of the most important events of the 20th century, and actually played a key role in them. Vodka will be served!
