Charm Offensive

oveFrederick Backman has earned a reputation for writing novels about quirky outsiders which are low-key and charming. In “A Man Called Ove”, a curmudgeon’s  solitary world is turned around when a boisterous young family moves in next door.  “Britt-Marie was Here” is another story about second chances, this time about a woman with an obsessive need for order. In “My Grandmother Asked me to Tell You She’s Sorry”,   Backman explores a young girl’s relationship with her eccentric grandmother.
