Book #65: And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer

And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer is another of Backman’s novellas, short enough to read in one sitting. This story is about a grandfather, his son, and grandson as the grandfather begins to lose his memories. In such a short span of story, Backman captures the intense poignancy of such a difficult situation. Like his other novella, it’s a little trippy and fantastical, but like all his works this story is emotionally gripping and sweet, displaying the trials and bonds of family.
