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.
