'I utterly believed in the residents of Beartown, and felt ripped apart by the events in the book' Jojo Moyes

Can a broken town survive a second tragedy?

By the time the last goal is scored, someone in Beartown will be dead . . .

Us Against You is the story of two towns, two teams and what it means to believe in something bigger than yourself. It's about how people come together - sometimes in anger, often in sorrow, but also through love. And how, when we stand together, we can bring a town back to life.

Praise for Beartown and Fredrik Backman

'A mature, compassionate novel' Sunday Times

'Backman can tickle the funny bone and tug on the heart strings when he needs to, and is a clever enough storyteller to not overindulge in either' Independent

'As popular Swedish exports go, Backman is up there with ABBA and Stieg Larsson' The New York Times Book Review

'A story about families, about friendship and loyalty, inequality, female vulnerability, male back-slapping, and parenthood ... No person's story is too little to be told, Backman includes them all. A novel with a big heart' Joenkoepings-Posten, Sweden
