Godsöndag.


Idag flyttar jag till Fredrikbackman.com. Jag vet inte riktigt vad som kommer finnas där än. Det kanske blir annorlunda, det kanske blir samma sak, jag har inte planerat speciellt noga. Men jag tror att det blir bra, tids nog, det också.


Jag har haft den här bloggen på Cafe.se i nästan precis fem år. Några av er som läser just nu har varit med ända från början, en handfull har varit me...

Interviews

June 2018, Fredrik Backman
"Swedish author Fredrik Backman first introduced readers to Beartown last year. Now, he's returning to the small, hockey-obsessed village with the second book in the series, Us Against You. "Sports is never just about sports. It's about people. The best and worst in us," he says, recommending his favorite books on the topic." ...More

The Brothers Lionheart by Astrid Lindgren
"In high school I loaned this to a girlfriend and then she dumped me and then I called her house like every day all "GIVE ME MY BOOK BACK" until she finally left it outside my door so she wouldn't have to talk to me.

I was a pretty big fan of this b..." Read more of this review »
Us Against You by Fredrik Backman
"Thank you Edelweiss for my review copy of this book.

I am reading everyone’s reviews saying that they liked or loved this book but that it did not connect for them in the same way Beartown did. I am going to be the opposite here. I LOVED this book..." Read more of this review »
Us Against You by Fredrik Backman
"Review coming - but ALL the stars for this!

Okay, here I go! Let me start by saying, Beartown was my #1 book of 2017, hands down. Soon after finishing, I heard a sequel would be coming and that absolutely terrified me - would it ruin the magic of B..." Read more of this review »

“People said Ove saw the world in black and white. But she was color. All the color he had.”
Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove

“To love someone is like moving into a house," Sonja used to say. "At first you fall in love in everything new, you wonder every morning that this is one's own, as if they are afraid that someone will suddenly come tumbling through the door and say that there has been a serious mistake and that it simply was not meant to would live so fine. But as the years go by, the facade worn, the wood cracks here and there, and you start to love this house not so much for all the ways it is perfect in that for all the ways it is not. You become familiar with all its nooks and crannies. How to avoid that the key gets stuck in the lock if it is cold outside. Which floorboards have some give when you step on them, and exactly how to open the doors for them not to creak. That's it, all the little secrets that make it your home.”
Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove

“Death is a strange thing. People live their whole lives as if it does not exist, and yet it's often one of the great motivations for the living. Some of us, in time, become so conscious of it that we live harder, more obstinately, with more fury. Some need its constant presence to even be aware of its antithesis. Others become so preoccupied with it that they go into the waiting room long before it has announced its arrival. We fear it, yet most of us fear more than anything that it may take someone other than ourselves. For the greatest fear of death is always that it will pass us by. And leave us there alone.”
Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove
