From the author of "A Man Called Ove" comes a poignant, charming novel about a crime that never took place, a would-be bank robber who disappears into thin air, and eight extremely anxious strangers who find they have more in common than they ever imagined.

Rich with Fredrik Backman’s "pitch-perfect dialogue and an unparalleled understanding of human nature" (Shelf Awareness), "Anxious People" is an ingeniously constructed story about the enduring power of friendship, forgiveness, and hope—the things that save us, even in the most anxious times.

I chose this book for our next discussion because it is a mix of tragic and hilarious, believable and absurd. It is also a very engrossing read despite > 300pgs. I think it will be a great start to our reading year.

I'll post discussion questions soon, as well as our meeting spot.

Looking forward!
