Description
A charming, warmhearted novel from the author of the New York Times bestseller A Man Called Ove Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy&;as in standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-strangers crazy. She is also Elsa&;s best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother&;s stories, in the Land-of-Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas, where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal.When Elsa&;s grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa&;s greatest adventure begins. Her grandmother&;s instructions lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and old crones but also to the truth about fairy tales and kingdoms and a grandmother like no other. My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She&;s Sorry is told with the same comic accuracy and beating heart as Fredrik Backman&;s bestselling debut novel, A Man Called Ove. It is a story about life and death and one of the most important human rights: the right to be different. &;Firmly in league with Roald Dahl and Neil Gaiman . . . A touching, sometimes funny, often wise portrait of grief.&; &;Kirkus Reviews &;Full of heart, hope, forgiveness, and the embracing of differences, Elsa&;s story is one that sticks with you long after you&;ve turned the last page.&;&;Library Journal
