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)
