With the conversation on mental health gaining mileage with time, books on them have also found great readership. Recently, actor Rasika Dugal shared a picture of herself reading Anxious People by Fredrik Backman. She went on to write that the book “doesn’t help the anxiety that you might or might not have. But helps you laugh at the anxiety and relatability of all things ordinary and crazy (which is the definition of ordinary… or of crazy). So I guess it does help the anxiety 😄…”

She went on to quote from the 2019 bestseller–“‘There was a time when a bank was a bank. But now there are evidently ‘cashless’ banks, banks without any money, which is surely something of a travesty? It’s hardly surprising that people get confused and society is going to the dogs when it’s full of caffeine-free coffee, gluten-free bread, alcohol-free beer'” — Fredrik Backman
