Man Called Ove, by Fredrik Backman

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.

New members welcome!

The DPL Book Group meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month from September to May, at 6:30-7:30 pm in the Gold Room of the Main Library. Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk of the Main Library 4 weeks before the meeting.
