“A Man Called Ove”
By Fredrik Backman

"Ove is a curmudgeon... He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell”... 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 into 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."

“You will laugh, you will cry, as his heartbreaking story unfolds through the diverse cast of characters that enter his life, all uninvited. You will never look at the grumpy people who come into your life in
quite the same way. A very memorable read."
