A 'new' Tove Jansson, published for the first time in English. Tales of obsession and ambition are revealed and sparkle 'like buried treasure'.
The writer and artist Tove Jansson (1914-2001) is best known as the creator of the Moomin stories, which have been published in thirty-five languages. However, from 1968, she turned her attention to writing for adults. Her bestseller, The Summer Book, is a modern Scandinavian classic. Art in Nature was published six years later. Translated from the Swedish by Thomas Teal, winner of the 'Rochester Best Translated Book Award 2011'.
