And Every Morning The Way Home Gets Longer and Longer is a sensitive, touching novella about a man, his son, and his son's son. The man is an inspiration to his grandson, something he never found the time to be for his son. Now, he is fading into dementia. And he knows it. With the help of his grandson, he finds a way to say good-bye to those he loves as his recall recedes. His son finds a way to forgive him. And his grandson finds a way to keep the memory of his grandmother, his grandfather's beloved since he was sixteen, alive. It is sad, but it is also sweet.

A little book with a big heart

"I read this beautifully imagined and moving novella in one sitting, utterly wowed, wanting to share it with everyone I know." --Lisa Genova, bestselling author of Still Alice

From the New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove, My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry, and Britt-Marie Was Here comes an exquisitely moving portrait of an elderly man's struggle to hold on to his most precious memories, and his family's efforts to care for him even as they must find a way to let go.

With all the same charm of his bestselling full-length novels, here Fredrik Backman once again reveals his unrivaled understanding of human nature and deep compassion for people in difficult circumstances. This is a tiny gem with a message you'll treasure for a lifetime.
