Divorced and lonely, Jónas Ebeneser leaves his home in Iceland for a city thousands of miles away pummeled by war and violence, now at tentative peace. He brings with him only his toolbox, scars, and grief. While he plans his suicide, the people of the town draw him out with their endless list of broken items to be fixed-- and into a world of surprise, love, and transformation.

From Library Staff

Don't be fooled by this book's slender size and spare prose. With a theme similar to A Man Called Ove, it is a profound but gentle story that walks the line between hope and despair, and humor and melancholy, ultimately landing on the side of optimism. Recommended by Lukie.
