Description

El autor bestseller del New York Times de los libros titulados A Man Called Ove y My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry, vuelve con esta conmovedora historia sobre una mujer que se redescubrió después de una crisis personal. "... los fanáticos de Backman encontrarán otro ganador en estas páginas (Publishers Weekly).

Britt-Marie no puede soportar la desorganización. Un cajón de cubiertos desorganizado ocupa un lugar destacado en su lista de pecados imperdonables. No es alguien que juzgue a los demás, no importa cuán maleducados, descuidados o moralmente sospechosos puedan ser. Es solo que a veces la gente interpreta sus sugerencias útiles como críticas, lo que ciertamente no es su intención.

Pero oculta en el interior de esta persona incómoda y socialmente torpe, hay una mujer que tiene más imaginación, sueños más grandes y un corazón más cálido de la cualquier persona a su alrededor puede percibir.

Cuando Britt-Marie abandona a su marido infiel y tiene que valerse por sí misma en la miserable ciudad atrasada de Borg, encuentra trabajo como la cuidadora de un centro de recreación demolido. La fastidiosa Britt-Marie pronto se ve arrastrada a las actividades cotidianas de sus conciudadanos, una extraña variedad de malhechores, borrachos, nómadas. Lo más alarmante de todo es que se le ha encomendado la tarea imposible de llevar a la victoria al equipo de fútbol infantil sin talento. En esta pequeña ciudad de inadaptados, ¿puede Britt-Marie encontrar un lugar al que realmente pertenezca?

Divertida y conmovedora, dulce e inspiradora, Britt-Marie estuvo aquí celebra la importancia de la comunidad y la conexión en un mundo que puede sentirse aislado.

Reviews

"Warm and satisfying."--People
"Backman has written another bestseller with his latest novel. While at first Britt-Marie seems intolerable and aggravating, readers are quickly endeared to her obsessive-compulsive ways and frank honesty. At first the writing style comes off sharp; however, readers quickly see that is how Britt-Marie processes the world and it too becomes something amicable. Heartfelt and truly stirring, Britt-Marie Was Here resonates long after the last page is read."--RT Magazine
"The bestselling author of A MAN CALLED OVE returns with this heartwarming story about a woman rediscovering herself after personal crisis. Backman reveals Britt-Marie's need for order....with clear, tight descriptions. Insightful and touching, this is a sweet and inspiring story about truth and transformation. Fans of Backman's will find another winner in these pages."--Publishers Weekly
"Universal...Backman hits a nice note between overly sweet and hard-boiled fiction; excellent for book clubs."--Library Journal (starred review)
"Britt-Marie's metamorphosis from cocoon to butterfly seems all the more remarkable for the utterly discouraging environment in which it takes place."--Booklist
"A brilliant mix of belly-laughs, profound insight and captivating events delivered... with Backman's pitch-perfect dialogue and an unparalleled understanding of human nature."--Shelf Awareness
PRAISE FOR A MAN CALLED OVE

"A charming debut...You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll feel new sympathy for the curmudgeons in your life. You'll also want to move to Scandinavia, where everything's cuter."--People
"Even the most serious reader of fiction needs light relief, and for that afternoon when all you want is charm, this is the perfect book."--San Francisco Chronicle
"A light hearted, deeply moving novel about a grumpy but loveable curmudgeon who finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door. This quirky debut is a thoughtful and charming exploration of the impact one life has on countless others--and an absolute delight."--CBS Local
"An inspiring affirmation of love for life and acceptance of people for their essence and individual quirks. A Man Called Ove is a perfect selection for book clubs. It's well written and replete with universal concerns. It lacks violence and profanity, is life-affirming and relationship-driven. The book is bittersweet, tender, often wickedly humorous and almost certain to elicit tears. I contentedly wept my way through a box of tissues when I first read the novel and again when I savored it for a second time."--BookBrowse.com
"A Man Called Ove is exquisite. The lyrical language is the confetti thrown liberally throughout this celebration-of-life story, adding sparkle and color to an already spectacular party. Backman's characters feel so authentic that readers will likely find analogues living in their own neighborhoods."--Shelf Awareness (starred review)
"Readers seeking feel-good tales with a message will rave about the rantings of this solitary old man with a singular outlook. If there was an award for 'Most Charming Book of the Year, ' this first novel by a Swedish blogger-turned-overnight-sensation would win hands down."--Booklist, Starred Review
"A funny crowd-pleaser that serves up laughs to accompany a thoughtful reflection on loss and love... The author writes with winning charm."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"This charming debut novel by Backman should find a ready audience with English-language readers... hysterically funny... wry descriptions, excellent pacing... In the contest of Most Winning Combination, it would be hard to beat grumpy Ove and his hidden, generous heart."--Kirkus Reviews
PRAISE FOR MY GRANDMOTHER ASKED ME TO TELL YOU SHE'S SORRY

"[...] Believable and fanciful. Backman's smooth storytelling infuses his characters with charm and wit. . . Engaging. . . A delightful story."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Every bit as churlish but lovable as Backman's cantankerous protagonist in his debut, A Man Called Ove (2014), precocious Elsa will easily work her way into the hearts of readers who like characters with spunk to spare. A delectable homage to the power of stories to comfort and heal, Backman's tender tale of the touching relationship between a grandmother and granddaughter is a tribute to the everlasting bonds of deep family ties."--Booklist (starred)
"Firmly in league with Roald Dahl and Neil Gaiman. A touching, sometimes funny, often wise portrait of grief."

--Kirkus Reviews
"In his second offering, Backman (A Man Called Ove) continues to write with the same whimsical charm and warm heart as in his debut."--Publishers Weekly
"An eclectic cast of characters, fairy-tale wisdom, and a little mystery... one of our favorite novels of the year so far."--SFGate.com
