Deer Man – Geoffrey Delorme


Geoffroy Delorme never felt he fitted into the human world. He would often disappear into the woods, drawn to the rhythms of animal life and away from the rules of a society he did not understand.
One night, an encounter with a deer changed his life: from then on, he knew he wanted to live among them. In Deer Man, Delorme describes becoming a creature of the forest, working to blend in with the deer and witnessing their births and deaths, loves and battles, ostracism and friendship. In his seventh year in the forest, Delorme meets a woman walking through the trees.
He knows he can stay in the forest and die with his friends – or he can leave, and speak their truth to a human world that desperately needs to hear it.
