RFL: A Man Called Ove

December 2, 2020 - 9:00 p.m. EST

On the surface, A Man called Ove (pronounced “OO-veh”) is the straightforward tale of the transformation of a grouch into a lovable neighbor. It is that, true enough, but the novel is much more as well. It is with the “much more” that reading fiction can become a spiritual practice: a habit of mind that transforms the imagination into a consciousness-elevating energy with life-changing power. Join Michael Verde as he makes visible the deep meanings of the archetypes and symbols of this international bestseller. The man called Ove proves to be much, much more than your garden-variety grump. In fact, he may be the most unusual man you will ever meet.
