Summary (From the publisher):

This is a lyric, poignantly satiric novel about an everyman character, Håkan. In the 36 chapters of the book, the various Håkans respond to intriguingly different and foreboding futures. The novel is a deft criticism of the false values of an obsessively materialistic society, and their potentially cataclysmic impact upon the world. Yet the book is nonetheless richly imbued with a deep appreciation for the values of human kindness and intelligence.
