- A deluxe edition of Tove Jansson’s first ever book for adults
- Contains 20 archive photos
- With an introduction by Ali Smith
- Translated by Kingsley Hart
Tove Jansson’s 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 ‘a book of superb stories’ by Ali Smith, Jansson’s 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.
This deluxe hardback with rare images from the Jansson family archive will make a perfect Christmas gift.
