Synopsis

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.

Tove Jansson, writer and artist (1914-2001) first published her Moomin stories for children in England sixty years ago. They have remained in print in the UK ever since. From 1968, however, she turned her attention to writing for adults. Her bestselling novel, The Summer Book, is a modern Scandinavian classic. Travelling Light was published fifteen years later.
