about

A must-read for fans of Rachel Joyce''sThe Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fryand Maria Semple''sWhere''d You Go, Bernadette

Heartbreaking and hilarious in equal measure, the new novel by the author of the internationally bestselling phenomenonA Man Called Ovewill charm and delight anyone who has ever had a grandmother. Everyone remembers the smell of their grandmother''s house.

Everyone remembers the stories their grandmother told them.

But does everyone remember their grandmother flirting with policemen? Driving illegally?
Breaking into a zoo in the middle of the night? Firing a paintball gun from a balcony in her dressing gown?

Seven-year-old Elsa does.

Some might call Elsa''s granny ''eccentric'', or even ''crazy''. Elsa calls her a superhero. And granny''s stories, of knights and princesses and dragons and castles, are her superpower. Because, as Elsa is starting to learn, heroes and villains don''t always exist in imaginary kingdoms; they could live just down the hallway.

As Christmas draws near, even the best superhero grandmothers may have one or two things they''d like to apologise for. And, in the process, Elsa can have some breath-taking adventures of her own . . .

Editorial Reviews

The author''s lightness of touch is definitely a contributor towards the novel''s success. (It''s already a best seller in his native country.) Fredrik conveys much in a few words . . . However a special warning to the ladies summed up in three words: wear waterproof mascara! I read the last few chapters verging between heart-glowing smiles and heart-wrenching sobs. I''ll be ready for it the next few times I read it though and, indeed, the times after that.-The Bookbag
