And that was why the Moomins found themselves a new home, and why they all had so many strange adventures, ones that were odd even by Moomin standards. . .

‘This is snow,’ Moomintroll whispered to himself.

Moomins always sleep through the winter – or they did until the year Moomintroll woke up and found he couldn’t go back to sleep again.

All the clocks had stopped, there was nothing to eat and no one to talk to at home, so he went out – straight into the first snowdrift he had ever seen.

The valley wasn’t green any more, it was white and silent and very scary. But then Moomintroll spied some tracks in the snow and decided to follow them. Maybe he wasn’t the only one awake in Moominvalley after all?

Fair Play by Tove Jansson (SoB) £7.99

Fair Play by Tove Jansson (SoB)

Fair Play by Tove Jansson (SoB)

 

“So what can happen when Tove Jansson turns her attention to her own favourite subjects, love and work, in the form of this novel about two women, lifelong partners and friends? Expect something philosophically calm – and discreetly radical… Fair Play is very fine art.”Ali Smith

What mattered most to Tove Jansson, she explained in her eighties, was work and love, a sentiment she echoes in this tender and original novel. Translated for the first time into English, Fair Play portrays a love between two older women, a writer and artist, as they work side-by-side in their Helsinki studios, travel together and share summers on a remote island. In the generosity and respect they show each other and the many small shifts they make to accommodate each other’s creativity we are shown a relationship both heartening and truly progressive.

The Summer Book by Tove Jansson (SoB)

The Summer Book by Tove Jansson (SoB)

A CLASSIC – AND A BESTSELLER (100,00 COPIES IN THE UK)

An elderly artist and her six-year-old grand-daughter while away a summer together on a tiny island in the gulf of Finland. As the two learn to adjust to each other’s fears, whims and yearnings, a fierce yet understated love emerges – one that encompasses not only the summer inhabitants but the very island itself.

Written in a clear, unsentimental style, full of brusque humour, and wisdom, The Summer Book is a profoundly life-affirming story. Tove Jansson captured much of her own life and spirit in the book, which was her favourite of her adult novels. This new edition, with a Foreword by Esther Freud, sees the return of a European literary gem – fresh, authentic and deeply humane.

The True Deceiver by Tove Jansson (SoB)

“The True Deceiver glitters with the kind of sharpness that might just cut you … It is one of Jansson’s most deceptively quiet, most astonishing compositions.”  Ali Smith

In the deep winter snows of a Swedish hamlet, a strange young woman fakes a break-in at the house of an elderly artist in order to persuade her that she needs companionship. But what does she hope to gain by doing this? And who ultimately is deceiving whom? In this portrayal of two women encircling each other with truth and lies, nothing can be taken for granted. By the time the snow thaws, both their lives will have changed irrevocably.

Travelling Light by Tove Jansson (SoB)

Translated into English for the first time, Travelling Light takes us into new Tove Jansson territory.

A professor arrives in a beautiful Spanish village only to find that her host has left and she must cope with fractious neighbours alone; a holiday on a Finnish Island is thrown into disarray by an oddly intrusive child; an artist returns from abroad to discover that her past has been eerily usurped.

With the deceptively light prose that is her hallmark, Tove Jansson reveals to us the precariousness of a journey – the unease we feel at being placed outside of our millieu, the restlessness and shadows that intrude upon a summer.

  • A brilliant new collection of stories, gripping and unnerving.
  • Introduced by Ali Smith.

First ever publication in English, in a translation by Silvester Mazzarella.

Art in Nature by Tove Jansson (SoB)

A ‘new’ Tove Jansson, published for the first time in English. Tales of obsession and ambition are revealed and sparkle ‘like buried treasure’

An elderly caretaker at a large outdoor exhibition, called Art in Nature, finds that a couple have lingered on to bicker about the value of a picture; he has a surprising suggestion that will resolve both their row and his own ambivalence about the art market. A draughtsman’s obsession with drawing locomotives provides a dark twist to a love story. A cartoonist takes over the work of a colleague who has suffered a nervous breakdown only to discover that his own sanity is in danger.

In these witty, sharp, often disquieting stories, Tove Jansson reveals the fault lines in our relationship with art, both as artists and as consumers. Obsession, ambition, and the discouragement of critics are all brought into focus in these wise and cautionary tales.
