Tove Jansson: life, art, words: the authorised biography

Westin, Boel, author; Mazzarella, Silvester, translator

The Finnish-Swedish writer and artist Tove Jansson achieved worldwide fame as the creator of the Moomin stories, written between 1945 and 1970 and still in print in more than 20 languages. However, the Moomins were only a part of her prodigious output. Already admired in Nordic art circles as a painter, cartoonist and illustrator, she would go on to write a series of classic novels and short stories. In this meticulously researched, authorised biography, Boel Westin draws together the many threads of Jansson's life
