My Grandmother Sends Her Regards and Apologises

A must-read for fans of Rachel Joyce´s The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fryand Maria Semple´s Where´d You Go, Bernadette

Heartbreaking and hilarious in equal measure, by the author of the New York Times bestselling phenomenon A Man Called Ove will 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 . . .

Rezension
There are clear themes here, nominally: the importance of stories; the honesty of children; and the obtuseness of most adults, putting him firmly in league with the likes of Roald Dahl and Neil Gaiman . A touching, sometimes funny, often wise portrait of grief. Kirkus
