Tove Jansson

Sculptor's Daughter - Tove Jansson


Tove Jansson's first book for adults was a memoir, capturing afresh the enchantments and fears of her Helsinki childhood.

Restored to its original form, Sculptor's Daughter gives us a glimpse of the mysteries of winter ice, the bonhomie of balalaika parties, and the vastness of Christmas viewed from beneath the tree.

There is so much more to Tove Jansson, than just the Moomin series and this memoir is the beginning.
