Bilingual book club will discuss A Man Called Ove/Un hombre llamado Ove by Fredrik Backman in English and Spanish.

Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell.” But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn’t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time?

Ove es un hombre seco y desabrido. El tipo de hombre que señala a las personas que no le caen bien como si fueran ladrones afuera de su ventana. El tiene devoto a sus principios, estrictas rutinas y carácter fuerte. La gente le dice “el vecino amargado del infierno.” ¿Pero está Ove amargado porque no camina con una sonrisa en la cara todo el tiempo?
