Letters from Klara by Tove Jansson (SoB)

Tove Jansson’s last original collection of short stories

The rich seam that is Jansson’s adult prose continues with this penultimate collection of short stories (the last containing all new stories), written in her seventies at the height of her Moomin fame. It has been translated into English for the first time. In these light-footed, beautifully crafted yet disquieting stories, Jansson tells of discomfiting encounters, unlooked for connections and moments of isolation that span generations and decades. Whether writing from the perspective of a bewildered young artist, a resilient child or an irascible elderly correspondent, Letters From Klara proves yet again her mastery of this literary form.

Thomas Teal has won the Rochester Best Translated Book Award and the Bernard Shaw Prize for Translation (twice) for his translations of Tove Jannson’s fiction.

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.
