Preview

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman is a novel titled after its cranky but quietly heroic protagonist. A heart condition has forced Ove, a 59-year-old widower, into early retirement. Now lacking purpose and overwhelmed by grief for his late wife, Ove finds himself contemplating suicide. Flashing back and forth between his interactions with his quirky neighbors in the present day and the story of his past, readers learn what makes this colorful character tick.

Somewhere in Sweden, a man called Ove has lived in a row house for nearly 40 years. Until six months ago, his beloved wife Sonja lived there with him, but she has died after a four-year battle with cancer. Now Ove's life consists mostly of picking arguments with people and visiting Sonja's grave. He feels very alone.

Before this row house, Ove lived in one other home: the one he shared with his father...
