Us Against You

12.25

A small, broken town sits on the edge of a frozen lake surrounded by a forest, its wounds still raw from a tragedy that tore its fragile community in two. Beartown has lost its way. Now the cold and dark that surround the snowbound town creep in, and so do new conflicts and tensions. What was once a friendly rivalry with the neighbouring town is beginning to turn sinister and Beartown braces itself for another tragic blow. How far will the people of Beartown go to preserve their reputations for a second, deadly time?

Description

The captivating and moving follow-up to the international bestseller Beartown, from the 18 million copy bestselling author of Anxious People and A Man Called Ove

‘I utterly believed in the residents of Beartown, and felt ripped apart by the events in the book’ Jojo Moyes on Beartown
________

Can a broken town survive a second tragedy?

By the time the last goal is scored, someone in Beartown will be dead . . .

Us Against You is the story of two towns, two teams and what it means to believe in something bigger than yourself. It’s about how people come together – sometimes in anger, often in sorrow, but also through love.

And how, when we stand together, we can bring a town back to life.

Praise for Fredrik Backman:

‘A mature, compassionate novel’ Sunday Times

‘Backman can tickle the funny bone and tug on the heart strings when he needs to, and is a clever enough storyteller to not overindulge in either’ Independent

‘As popular Swedish exports go, Backman is up there with ABBA and Stieg Larsson’
The New York Times Book Review
