‘The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared’ has been translated into Persian by Kaihan Bahmani and has been released by Amut Publishing in 512 pages. The original book was published by Piratförlaget, Hyperion Books in Sweden.
Synopsis of the book reads: “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. A big celebration is in the works for his 100th birthday, 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: he has not only witnessed some of the most important events of the 20th century, but actually played a key role in them.”
After a long career as a journalist, media consultant and television producer, Jonas Jonasson (born in 1961) decided to start a new life. He wrote a manuscript, the manuscript became a novel ‘The Hundred-Year-Old Man…’. The novel became a phenomenon in Sweden, and now it is about to reach the rest of the world.
