A Winter Book: Selected Stories by Tove Jansson

by Selected Stories by Tove Jansson
£6.99   paperback  Sort of Books (2006)

A Winter Book: Selected Stories by Tove Jansson by Selected Stories by Tove Jansson Following the widely acclaimed and bestselling The Summer Book, here is a Winter Book collection of some of Tove Janssonís best loved and most famous stories. Drawn from youth and older age, and spanning most of the twentieth century, this newly translated selection provides a thrilling showcase of the great Finnish writerís prose, scattered with insights and home truths. It has been selected and is introduced by Ali Smith.

The Winter Book features 13 stories from Tove Janssonís first book for adults, The Sculptorís Daughter (1968) plus 7 of her most cherished later stories (from 1971 to 1996), translated into English and published here for the first time.

"Written with such a lightness of touch that it seems miraculous, these stories are a further revelation of Tove Jansson's heart warming genius." "
(Ali Smith)
"As smooth and odd and beautiful as sea-worn driftwood, as full of light and air as the Nordic summer. We are lucky to have these stories collected at last."
(Philip Pullman)
