“Winsome, bittersweet...Wise and heartbreaking, Backman’s slim novella celebrates the joy of connecting even in the midst of letting go.” (People Magazine)
“A novella to be savored and reread about a boy, his dad and his grandpa as they learn to say goodbye. It’s a little book with a big message." (San Francisco Chronicle)
"I read this beautifully imagined and moving novella in one sitting, utterly wowed, wanting to share it with everyone I know." (Lisa Genova, New York Times bestselling author of Still Alice)
"Beautiful, dreamlike, heartbreaking, and heartwarming. Bring tissues. Bring all the tissues.” (REALSIMPLE.COM)
“The saddest, sweetest book ever... It is heartbreakingly sad, but also beautiful and uplifting in the end.” (LaSalle News Tribune)
PRAISE FOR A MAN CALLED OVE
“A charming debut…You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll feel new sympathy for the curmudgeons in your life. You’ll also want to move to Scandinavia, where everything’s cuter.” (People)
“Even the most serious reader of fiction needs light relief, and for that afternoon when all you want is charm, this is the perfect book." (San Francisco Chronicle)
"A light hearted, deeply moving novel about a grumpy but loveable curmudgeon who finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door. This quirky debut is a thoughtful and charming exploration of the impact one life has on countless others—and an absolute delight." (CBS Local)
"An inspiring affirmation of love for life and acceptance of people for their essence and individual quirks. A Man Called Ove is a perfect selection for book clubs. It's well written and replete with universal concerns. It lacks violence and profanity, is life-affirming and relationship-driven. The book is bittersweet, tender, often wickedly humorous and almost certain to elicit tears. I contentedly wept my way through a box of tissues when I first read the novel and again when I savored it for a second time.” (BookBrowse.com)
"A Man Called Ove is exquisite. The lyrical language is the confetti thrown liberally throughout this celebration-of-life story, adding sparkle and color to an already spectacular party. Backman's characters feel so authentic that readers will likely find analogues living in their own neighborhoods." (Shelf Awareness (starred review))
