Tove Jansson

Book - Fair Play: Tove Jansson


The writer and artist Tove Jansson (1914-2001) is best known as the creator of the gorgeous Finnish Moomin series.

This book 'Fair Play' is designed for the adult reader and is a charming, quietly radical and inspiring book.

'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. At first sight it looks autobiographical. Like everything Jansson wrote, it's much more than it seems . . . Fair Play is very fine art . '

(Ali Smith from the introduction to Fair Play)
