Look out for ANXIOUS PEOPLE, the new novel by Fredrik Backman, the 13 million copy bestselling author of A Man Called Ove. The captivating and moving follow-up to the international bestseller Beartown.
‘I utterly believed in the residents of Beartown, and felt ripped apart by the events in the book’ Jojo Moyes on Beartown
Can a broken town survive a second tragedy?
By the time the last goal is scored, someone in Beartown will be dead . . .
Us Against You is the story of two towns, two teams and what it means to believe in something bigger than yourself.
It’s about how people come together – sometimes in anger, often in sorrow, but also through love. And how, when we stand together, we can bring a town back to life.
