"I can't remember the last time that I read a book where I alternately cried and laughed, and sometimes both at the same time."--Marilyn Dahl, Shelf Awareness
"There are characters who amuse us, and stories that touch us. But this character and his story do even more: A Man Called Ove makes us think about who we are and how we want to live our lives. A Man Called Ove seems deceptively simple at the start, yet Frederik Backman packs a lifetime's worth of hilarity and heartbreak into this novel. Even the most crusty curmudgeon will love Ove!"--Lois Leveen, author of Juliet's Nurse and The Secrets of Mary Bowser
"Bring tissues when you start My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry, but bring your funnybone, too. It's that kind of book - one that, if you miss it, you'll never forgive yourself."
--Business Insider, Best Books of 2015
"Fredrik Backman has a knack for weaving tales that are believable and fanciful. Backman's smooth storytelling infuses his characters with charm and wit... a delightful story."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Every bit as churlish but lovable as Backman's cantankerous protagonist in his debut, A Man Called Ove (2014), precocious Elsa will easily work her way into the hearts of readers who like characters with spunk to spare. A delectable homage to the power of stories to comfort and heal, Backman's tender tale of the touching relationship between a grandmother and granddaughter is a tribute to the everlasting bonds of deep family ties."--Booklist (starred)
"Full of heart, hope, forgiveness, and the embracing of differences, Elsa's story is one that sticks with you long after you've turned the last page."--Library Journal
"Firmly in league with Roald Dahl and Neil Gaiman. A touching, sometimes funny, often wise portrait of grief."
The #1 internationally bestselling author of A Man Called Ove is firmly in league with Roald Dahl and Neil Gaiman (Kirkus Reviews) in this whimsical (Publishers Weekly) novel about a young girl whose grandmother leaves behind a series of letters, sending her on a journey that brings to life a world of homespun fairy tales.
Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazyas in standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-strangers crazy. She is also Elsas best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmothers stories, in the Land-of-Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal.
When Elsas grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsas greatest adventure begins. Her grandmothers instructions lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and old crones but also to the truth about fairy tales and kingdoms and a grandmother like no other.
My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You Shes Sorry is told with the same comic accuracy and beating heart as Fredrik Backmans internationally bestselling debut novel,A Man Called Ove. It is a story about life and death and one of the most important human rights: the right to be different.
