Description
Read the New York Times bestseller that has taken the world by storm! In this &;charming debut&; (People) from one of Sweden&;s most successful authors, a grumpy yet loveable man finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door.Meet Ove. He&;s a curmudgeon&;the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him &;the bitter neighbor from hell.&; But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn&;t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time? Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove&;s mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents&; association to their very foundations. A feel-good story in the spirit of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and Major Pettigrew&;s Last Stand, Fredrik Backman&;s novel about the angry old man next door is a thoughtful exploration of the profound impact one life has on countless others. &;If there was an award for &;Most Charming Book of the Year,&; this first novel by a Swedish blogger-turned-overnight-sensation would win hands down&; (Booklist, starred review).
