Bookclub: The Scandal By Fredrik Backman
For the last book club of the year, and in keeping with the season, we’ve been reading a dark, Scandi, sports SLASH crime novel, it’s called The Scandal- well that’s what it’s called here- it goes by the title Beartown over in the US... but we’ll cover that later.
It’s by Fredrick Backman, the author of the best-selling A Man Called Ove, which sold millions of copies and was made into a feature film.
This is his latest offering, and while it’s a bit of a departure for him, it’s proving to be just as popular with readers.
Eamon Dunphy, broadcaster, Natasha Fennell, Director of Stillwater Communications, Aoife Barry, Assistant News Editor of the Journal.ie, and Bob Johnsen, owner of the Gutter Bookshops in Dalkey and Temple Bar came into studio to talk all about it.
