Meet Ove in this heart-warming story.  He’s a curmudgeon, sometimes called the “bitter neighbor from hell”, one who points his finger at anyone he dislikes.  Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.  So when a chatty young couple with two chatty children move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove’s mailbox, it leads to a tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the art of backing up a U-Haul.  All of this will change this cranky old man and the local residents’ association.  Blackman’s novel explores the profound impact one’s life has on others.
