♥ Book Title : Moomin Book Three
☯ Full Synopsis : "Moomin has been swiftly making its way into the hearts of North Americans ever since Drawn & Quarterly began collecting the strip in 2006. It debuted in the London Evening News in 1954 and has become the fastest-selling D+Q series to date. Fifty years ago, Tove Jansson's observations of everyday life--whimsical but with biting undertones--easily caught the attention of an international audience and still resonate today. This third volume returns to Moominvalley, where its beloved inhabitants get tangled up in five new stories. Moomin falls in love with a damsel in distress, an unseasonably warm spell turns the valley into a tropical rain forest, and a flying saucer crashes into Moominmamma's garden. Moominpappa decides to live out his dream of occupying a lighthouse and writing a great seaside novel, only to discover that he hates the sea so close up and has no interest in writing about it, and a variety of curious clubs spring up in the valley. Moomin and Moominmamma do their level best to avoid the whole mess but, of course, get drawn into the muddle."Article| Tove Jansson| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Summer Book
☯ Full Synopsis : "In The Summer Book Tove Jansson distills the essence of the summer—its sunlight and storms—into twenty-two crystalline vignettes. This brief novel tells the story of Sophia, a six-year-old girl awakening to existence, and Sophia’s grandmother, nearing the end of hers, as they spend the summer on a tiny unspoiled island in the Gulf of Finland. The grandmother is unsentimental and wise, if a little cranky; Sophia is impetuous and volatile, but she tends to her grandmother with the care of a new parent. Together they amble over coastline and forest in easy companionship, build boats from bark, create a miniature Venice, write a fanciful study of local bugs. They discuss things that matter to young and old alike: life, death, the nature of God and of love. “On an island,” thinks the grandmother, “everything is complete.” In The Summer Book, Jansson creates her own complete world, full of the varied joys and sorrows of life. Tove Jansson, whose Moomintroll comic strip and books brought her international acclaim, lived for much of her life on an island like the one described in The Summer Book, and the work can be enjoyed as her closely observed journal of the sounds, sights, and feel of a summer spent in intimate contact with the natural world."Article| Tove Jansson| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Fair Play
☯ Full Synopsis : "Fair Play is the type of love story that is rarely told, a revelatory depiction of contentment, hard-won and exhilarating. Mari is a writer and Jonna is an artist, and they live at opposite ends of a big apartment building, their studios connected by a long attic passageway. They have argued, worked, and laughed together for decades. Yet they’ve never really stopped taking each other by surprise. Fair Play shows us Mari and Jona’s intertwined lives as they watch Fassbinder films and Westerns, critique each other’s work, spend time on a solitary island (recognizable to readers of Jansson’s The Summer Book), travel through the American Southwest, and turn life into nothing less than art."Article| Tove Jansson| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Tove Jansson
☯ Full Synopsis : "Ett självporträtt mot 40 säckar torv och reparation av ett fönster var ett kap för den unga målaren Tove Jansson vintern 1946. Hon hade drömt om att bli fyrvaktare, men blev en världsberömd författare, bosatt i ett kyligt torn i Helsingfors. Hennes färgstarka liv är en berättelse i sig själv, fylld av måleri och mumintroll, skrift och sökande, arbete och kärlek. Framgångssagan började skrivas på 1950-talet, då muminfebern grasserade första gången. Men bakom trollen och tavlorna finns en ständig kamp mellan lusten och plikten, viljan och ansvaret. Tove Jansson sökte nya konstnärliga uttryck hela sitt liv, från de första teckningarna till den sista boken. Ge mig en bild, en uttryckslängtan. De behöver inte vara mycket, men det måste vara något, en liten lust, ett litet behov, skriver hon i en anteckning 1960. Tidigare okända brev till familj och vänner, dag- och anteckningsböcker och mängder av annat nytt material ligger till grund för denna första stora biografi om målaren och författaren Tove Jansson. Boel Westin har som enda forskare haft fri tillgång till hela Tove Janssons arkiv. E-boksutgåvan är reviderad 2013, med färre bilder och nytt förord."Article| Boel Westin| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Poets, Prophets, and Texts in Play
☯ Full Synopsis : "In this volume, a list of esteemed scholars engage with the literary readings of prophetic and poetic texts in the Hebrew Bible that revolve around sensitivity to the complexity of language, the fragility of meaning, and the interplay of texts. These themes are discussed using a variety of hermeneutical strategies. In Part 1, Poets and Poetry, some essays address the nature of poetic language itself, while others play with themes of love, beauty, and nature in specific poetic texts. The essays in Part 2, Prophets and Prophecy, consider prophets and prophecy from a number of interpretive directions, moving from internal literary analysis to the reception of these texts and their imagery in a range of ancient and modern contexts. Those in Part 3, on the other hand, Texts in Play, take more recent works (from Shakespeare to Tove Jansson's Moomin books for children) as their point of departure, developing conversations between texts across the centuries that enrich the readings of both the ancient and modern pieces of literature."Article| Ehud Ben Zvi, Claudia V.
