My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry

by Fredrik Backman

My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry Synopsis

From the author of the internationally bestselling A Man Called Ove, a charming, warmhearted novel about a young girl whose grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters, sending her on a journey that brings to life the world of her grandmothers fairy tales.Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy, standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-men-who-want-to-talk-about-Jesus-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 letters lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and totally ordinary old crones, but also to the truth about fairytales 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 an ode to one of the most important human rights: the right to be different.
