Travelling Light Summary


Travelling Light by Tove Jansson

This newly translated collection of stories brilliantly evokes the shifting scenes and restlessness of summer. A professor arrives in a beautiful Spanish village only to find that her host has left and she must cope with fractious neighbours alone; a holiday on a Finnish Island is thrown into disarray when a disconcerting young boy arrives; an artist returns to an old flat to discover that her life has been eerily usurped. Philosophical and profound, but with the deceptive lightness that is her hallmark, Travelling Light is guaranteed to surprise and transport.

Travelling Light Reviews


Jansson's prose is wondrous: it is clean, deliberate; an aesthetic so certain of itself it's breathtaking * Daily Telegraph *
