August Books 9) A Winter Book, by Tove Jansson

Lovely collection of Jansson's short fiction, arranged loosely by age of the protagonist who in most cases clearly reflects Jansson herself. There's a vivid picture of her war with a squirrel on her island; there are poignant letters sent to the author by Moomin fans; there are vignettes of family life. It's all very absorbing as we celebrate her centenary.
