A Winter Book brings together thirteen of the Finnish maestro’s most beloved stories for adults in English for the first time.

Following the widely acclaimed and bestselling The Summer Book, here is A Winter Book collection of some of Tove Jansson’s best loved and most famous stories.

Drawn from youth and older age, this newly translated selection provides a thrilling showcase of the great Finnish writer’s prose. It’s scattered with insights and home truths. It has been selected and is introduced by Ali Smith.

This series features 13 stories from Tove Jansson’s first book for adults, The Sculptor’s Daughter (1968) plus 7 of her most cherished later stories (from 1971 to 1996). It has been translated into English and published here for the first time.
