Together they would travel to the six kingdoms in the Land-of-Almost-Awake where they had adventures involving cloud animals, regretters, wurses, snow-angels, dragons, princesses and knights. In My Grandmother Asked me to Tell You She's Sorry, Backman weaves a creative tapestry of the ordinary together with the extraordinary. In parallel, we get stories from The Land of Almost Awake, a fantasy creation of Elsa's grandmother to draw her away from her tough life and keep her entertained.

With themes of the ‘superpower’ of the imagination and the importance of individuality, this novel is didactic without being preachy.Backman has the ability to make you laugh and cry and to find the most unlikely expressions which are, in effect, perfect. Although both novels featured an older person’s interactions with a young person, they were vastly different.

My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” is a sentimental tale, with a 7 (almost 8) year old protagonist whose sardonic voice is a real joy to read. Along the way she finds new friends and comes to understand some of the mysteries surrounding her family.By the time I finished the epilogue, I had tears in my eyes, I was missing Elsa and Granny something fierce, and this book had earned all the stars and a spot on my list of top ten reads of 2019. So when a child and a war soldier look at the same issue and engage in a long discussion, their respective identities and backgrounds stand beside them like faithful sentries. Her parents are divorced and her mother and new partner are expecting a baby but worst of all Elsa is having a rough time at school . Each person is a side story unto themselves and it is fun watching their tales all get woven together. But Backman's writing is so different than Foer's that this story is absolutely still worth reading.
