The Woman Who Borrowed Memories
Selected StoriesUnknown - 2014
This volume brings together, for the first time in English, a generous selection of stories from the most fruitful period of Tove Jansson's career, from her earliest collected stories, dating from the early 1970s, to her mature work, written not long before her death in 2001. In them are moments of the sublime and the mundane, as well as small heroisms and large griefs. Unsentimental, yet kind and humane, Jansson's short stories complement and enlarge our understanding of a giant of world literature.
