Sinopsis/Synopsis:

‘Hank’ tersadar di Stasiun Penn, New York tanpa ingatan. Pemuda berumur tujuh belas tahun itu tidak tahu namanya, siapa dirinya, dan dari mana ia berasal. Satu-satunya petunjuk yang ia miliki adalah sebuah buku berjudul ‘Walden’ karya Henry David Thoreau yang ada di tangannya. Menggunakan buku itu, ia mencoba mencari jati dirinya. Dapatkah ia mengingat kembali siapa dirinya?

Atau lebih baik ia tidak mengingatnya sama sekali?

Seventeen-year-old “Hank” has found himself at Penn Station in New York City with no memory of anything –who he is, where he came from, why he’s running away. His only possession is a worn copy of Walden, by Henry David Thoreau. And so he becomes Henry David-or “Hank” and takes first to the streets, and then to the only destination he can think of–Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. Cal Armistead’s remarkable debut novel is about a teen in search of himself. Hank begins to piece together recollections from his past. The only way Hank can discover his present is to face up to the realities of his grievous memories. He must come to terms with the tragedy of his past, to stop running, and to find his way home.
