Nicki's Picks: Anxious People By Frederik Backman
If you are a cocktail enthusiast this is a story you will swallow in one gulp. A beautiful blend of quirkiness, romance, humour and compassion, all constructed around a crime. (Actually, it’s a crime that doesn’t really exist. So it’s probably more of a mocktail.)
When an attempt at robbing a bank fails, a distraught parent, short on rent and afraid of losing child custody, bursts in on an open home and takes a group of strangers hostage. Over the course of the hours spent locked up it emerges the group are all a bit damaged and lifetimes of grievances and secrets are revealed. But never fear, this is not a tear inducing gin based cocktail, you’ll be soon be all tingly and aglow as confessions lead to friendships, forgiveness and hope.
A story of heartbreak, laced with comedy. A perfect mix.
