I’d like to thank my niece for recommending My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry: A Novel by Fredrik Backman. It was thoroughly enjoyable. I’m glad I finally got to it.
A quirky grandmother comforts her granddaughter, Elsa, who is “7 almost 8” years old, with fairy tails of ‘the land of almost awake’. After her grandmother dies, Elsa relates these fairy tails to her life and to her grandmother’s life.
Backman is definitely a talented and clever author.
I really enjoyed the audio narrator, Joan Walker. She did an excellent job.
