‘Wonderfully subversive, funny and original.’ Observer

‘Doppler is a lovely little book. It gripped me from the very first page and I
read the entire thing in a single day. It was unusual in that it was both powerful and
entertaining; a rare combination that is difficult to pull off.’ Farm Lane Books
‘Rampant and enjoyable.’ Book Bag

Doppler has just lost his father. Despite the fact that he has a pregnant wife and two children, he decides to move into the woods . Here he starts a lonely and purposefully boring existence. He has never been so happy. 

When Doppler kills a she-elk for meat he can't feel guilty about it, but he does feel a bit guilty about the calf she left behind. When the baby elk adopts him, Doppler is tempted to knock it down as well. But the little elk is wily and escapes death, and gradually they become friends. He names the little elk Bongo. 

Doppler is a charming, absurd and subversive novel with serious undertones and criticism of our modern consumer society.

Just £1.
