Jansson's debut collection translated for the first time into English, to coincide with the centenary of her birth In her first ever story collection, Jansson revealed the clarity of vision and light philosophical touch that were to become her hallmark. From the good listener who begins to betray the secrets confided to her, to vignettes of a city storm or the slow halting of spring, these stories are gifts of originality and depth. Tove Jansson (1914-2001) is best known as the creator of the much loved Moomin stories for children. However, in her fifties she turned her attention to writing for adults, producing a dozen novels and story collections. Sculptor's Daughter, (to be published Nov 2013 - 9781908745330) was the first, in 1968, followed by The Listener, three years later.
