The international publishing sensation?over two million copies sold
A reluctant centenarian with a life much like Forrest Gump?s (if Gump were an explosives expert with a fondness for vodka) decides it?s not too late to start over . . .
After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he?s still in good health, and one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn?t interested (and he?d like a bit more control over his alcohol consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey.
It would be the adventure of a lifetime for anyone else, but Allan has a larger-than-life backstory: not only has he witnessed some of the most important events of the twentieth century, he has actually played a key role in them. Quirky and utterly unique, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared has charmed readers across the world.
