Benny & Shrimp by Katarina Marzetti

book jacket
This is a delightful read about two lonely thirty somethings.  Benny is a dairy farmer and Shrimp is a librarian.  I found Benny to be a more likeable character than Shrimp-----Shrimp seemed unwilling to compromise.  It is a quick read divided by chapters and each chapter is told from the other’s viewpoint.  It is a most enjoyable and quick read.  It is a translation from the Swedish and I am never sure with translation if it is the author I like or the translator.

Request Benny & Shrimp from the Bangor Public Library
