A Man Called Ove
by Fredrik Backman is a charming Swedish novel about the grumpiest man you could imagine. But he’s also practical, kind and loving. It’s a great translation, easy to read and touchingly funny, and is highly recommended.

Rendezvous in Black by Cornell Woolrich is a 1948 psychological thriller. It’s a great read despite some intricate implausibilities. (Aren’t most thrillers like that?!). I read it in a day. I’m still looking for my copy of his The Black Curtain which I loaned out. These two novels are part of six Black novels and I’ll be seeking out the others in the series. Highly recommended.
