And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrik Backman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fredrik Backman has rapidly become my new favorite author. This little gem of a story will tug at your heart. Bachman has such a child-like sense of wonder that he brings to his books. His description of how the hyacinth flowers 'smell like Christmas' are a perfect example of the child logic that he infuses throughout his stories. The story centers on a grandpa and his precious grandson as they prepare to deal with grandpa's fading memory. Grandpa calls him NoahNoah because he likes that name twice as much as any other name. As a new grandma this story had added meaning to me. A short story - this little book will take less than an hour to read, but I promise it will be an hour well spent.
