A MAN CALLED OVE by Fredrik Backman

Title: A Man Called Ove, Author: Fredrik Backman

Do you like to talk about the books you enjoy reading with others?  Then join us the second Monday of each month at 2pm for reader-to-reader discussions, informal fun, and sharing with fellow fiction lovers.  

In this month's selection, 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.

No sign-up is required.  Refreshments are served.  Come and meet with other adults who like to read and discuss lighter fiction.
