Fredrik Backman’s newest novel is “Anxious People.” Looking at real estate isn’t usually a life-or-death situation, but an apartment open house becomes just that when a failed bank robber burst ins and takes a group of strangers hostage. None of them are who they appear to be – but they all want rescued. These reluctant allies reveal surprising truths about themselves and set in motion a chain of events so unexpected that even they can hardly explain what happens next. “Anxious People” is also available digitally in Overdrive/Libby and the CloudLibrary.
