Translated from the Swedish. Translation of: Man som heter Ove. "First published in Great Britain in 2014 by Hodder & Stoughton"--Title page verso.
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.
