2:30 PM, Eureka Library's Friday Afternoon Book Group, 'Anxious People' by Fredrik Backman (Zoom)

Friday, January 14, 2022

In another writer's hands this plot could be a grim read, but instead reviewers note that it's 'a lighthearted romp' and 'sheer reading pleasure'. "A poignant comedy about a crime that never took place, a would-be bank robber who disappears into thin air, and eight extremely anxious strangers who find they have more in common than they ever imagined. Viewing an apartment normally doesn’t turn into a life-or-death situation, but this particular open house becomes just that when a failed bank robber bursts in and takes everyone in the apartment hostage. As the pressure mounts, the eight strangers slowly begin opening up to one another and reveal long-hidden truths." -- The Publisher
