Join us for a reading group discussion of "A Man Called Ove" by Fredrik Backman!

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? 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.
