Stacy Goldring introduced the First Coast Connect Book Club’s book of the month Tuesday, “A Man Called Ove.”
This bestseller is about a crotchety, short-fused and suicidal old man named Ove, who just lost his wife.
Ove lives in a neighborhood that Goldring refers to as an “isle of misfits.” These “misfits” show Ove the value and importance of life and guide him away from suicide.
“The theme is you’ve got to feel useful and relevant,” Goldring said. “If you can feel relevant then you have a purpose in life.”
