One morning, my husband and I discover a tiny man trapped inside a fish oil pill. After carefully extracting him from the casing, we learn of the astonishing events that lead to his encapsulation, his experience of involuntary teleportation and time travel, and the dream that kept him alive. Together, we embark on a journey to return him to his rightful size and place in the world, but t before Nikita Khrushchev shows up in our bedroom and Raoul Wallenberg returns from the past. The story of Nicky Chase: Man in a Fish Oil Pill is a story of human transformation, of following your dream, of the road that follows trauma, and the healing that is possible.
