A funny, uplifting and life-affirming tale of grumpiness, perfect if you loved A Man Called Ove, Rachel Joyce's The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry or The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83¼ Years Old. Everyone knows a Grump . . . The Grump, at eighty years old, is more focused on death than life; building his own coffin and keen to write his will in ink - who can trust technology, after all? - he knows that everything was much better in the old days. But when the Grump finds himself in hospital after falling down his basement steps, his life passes before his eyes. Thinking of the people closest to him and reflecting on the changes to the world, he starts to see the things a little differently. But can an old Grump learn new love? With warm humour and a loving look at family and relationships, The Happy Days of the Grump is sure to bring a smile to even the grumpiest faces.
