Sculptor's Daughter: A Childhood Memoir

by Tove Jansson - £8.99  Sort of Books (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781908745491 | ISBN 10: 1908745495

Tove Janssonís first book for adults drew on her childhood memories to capture afresh the enchantments and fears of growing up in Helsinki in the 1910s and 20s.
 
Described as both a memoir and Ďa book of superb storiesí by Ali Smith, Janssonís startlingly evocative prose offers a glimpse of the mysteries of winter ice, the bonhomie of balalaika parties, and the vastness of Christmas viewed from beneath the tree.
