Somehow a new Tove Jansson edition has come from Sort Of Books without me noticing (or them telling me, come to that!) – and I have now, of course, got it. It’s her memoir/short story collection The Sculptor’s Daughter – word of warning, many (most?) of these stories appeared in the very brilliant collection A Winter Book, but there are some that don’t seem to have been translated into English elsewhere.
It’s a beautiful edition – it doesn’t match the other Tove Jansson books Sort Of have published, with their blue covers, but it’s got a lovely feel and quality to it. News it, I am told, that more Jansson stories are going to be translated, and a biography will also appear. Lovely!
So, not a review, just a so-you-know. Something for a Christmas stocking?
