Description

Things My Son Needs To Know About The World is a tender and funny series of letters from a new father to his son about one of life’s most daunting experiences: parenthood. ‘You can be whatever you want to be but that’s nowhere near as important as knowing that you can be exactly who you are’ In between the sleep-obsessed lows and oxytocin-fuelled highs Backman takes a step back to share his own experience of fatherhood and how he navigates such unchartered territory. Part memoir part manual part love letter to his son this book relays the big and the small lessons in life. As he watches his son take his first steps into the world he teaches him how to navigate both love – and IKEA – and tries to explain why sometimes his dad might hold his hand just a little bit too tightly. This is an irresistible and insightful collection from one of the world’s most beautiful storytellers – the bestselling author of A Man Called Ove and Beartown. Praise for Fredrick Backman: ‘A mature compassionate novel’ Sunday Times ‘Will funny and almost unbearably moving’ Daily Mail ‘You’ll love this engrossing novel’ People ‘Backman is a masterful writer’ Kirkus Review
