A little book with a big heart—from the New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove and Anxious People.
“I read this beautifully imagined and moving novella in one sitting, utterly wowed, wanting to share it with everyone I know.” —Lisa Genova, bestselling author of Still Alice
From the New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove, My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry, Britt-Marie Was Here, and Anxious People comes an exquisitely moving portrait of an elderly man’s struggle to hold on to his most precious memories, and his family’s efforts to care for him even as they must find a way to let go.
With all the same charm of his bestselling full-length novels, here Fredrik Backman once again reveals his unrivaled understanding of human nature and deep compassion for people in difficult circumstances. This is a tiny gem with a message you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
Loved the story, but hate when I spend 5.99 and a book is advertised as 65 pages and the actual story is only 47. I don't like paying for 18 pages of advertising. Otherwise Backman could never dissapoint me.
If I could sum this book up in one word: “Wow”.
Overwhelming in its simplicity
Thank You Fredrik Backman
