The true deceiver by Tove Jansson( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deception-the lies we tell ourselves and the lies we tell others -is the subject of The True Deceiver, Tove Jansson's most unnerving and unpredictable novel. Here Jansson takes a darker look at the subjects that animate the best of her work: solitude and community, art and life, love and hate. All winter long the snow has been falling on the village. The sun rises late in the day, and once it does, there is little to do but trade tales. This year the talk of the town is all about Katri Kling and Anna Armelin. Katri is a yellow-eyed outcast who lives in a room with her simple teenaged brother and a dog she never bothered to name. She has no use for the daily dishonesties that smooth social life, but she can see to the rational core of any problem. Anna, an elderly children's book illustrator, is a respected and easygoing, if aloof, member of society. She lives alone in her family mansion, venturing out come springtime to paint exquisitely detailed paintings of the forest floor (to which her young fans insist she add adorable pink bunnies). When Anna needs someone to help around the house, Katri eagerly volunteers. It's not long before she and her brother have moved into the mansion and taken charge of just about every aspect of Anna's life and livelihood. As the season becomes increasingly oppressive, the two women find themselves engaged in a confrontation that will gradually strip away their cherished illusions
The woman who borrowed memories : selected stories by Tove Jansson( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An NYRB Classics Original Tove Jansson excelled at the brief tale, writing stories that in their short spans unfold to reveal entire worlds. This is true of her internationally syndicated cartoon strip about a family of hippo-like creatures, the Moomins; of her beloved Moomin novels; and of her best-selling books for adults, like The Summer Book. Until now, however, Jansson's short stories have been nearly impossible to find in the United States. This volume brings together, for the first time in English, a generous selection of stories from the most fruitful period of her career, from her earliest collected stories, dating from the early 1970s, to her mature work, written not long before her death in 2001. In them are moments of the sublime and the mundane, as well as small heroisms and large griefs. Unsentimental, yet kind and humane, Jansson's short stories complement and enlarge our understanding of a giant of world literature

The air cage by Per Wästberg( Book )

8 editions published between 1972 and 1975 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I halvsyskonen Jan och Gertrud Backmans vibrerande men omslutande kärlek öppnas en dörr. Jenny Jeger kliver in och för med sig världen. Hon tvingar syskonen ut ur deras trygga avskildhet. Hon släcker inte deras kärlek, men de tvingas lära sig att leva parallellt, att mötas på avstånd. Mellan flygledaren Jan och byrådirektören Jenny växer en annan slags kärlek. En ny kärlek, en resa i slumpen, ögonblick som förändrar allt. Man äger ingen. Först i frihet, utan yttre band och löften, når man kanske en människas inre. En sinnlighet utan gräns, som får vardagen att blänka, de enklaste handlingar att skimra. Men hur mycket frihet kan luften bära? Luftburen ingick i Per Wästbergs roman-trilogi om kärlek i 1960-talets Stockholm. När den kom ut 1969 väckte den stor uppståndelse och den efterföljande debatten blev hätskt polariserad. Många provocerades av dess innehåll. Andra gladdes åt att det obeskrivna nu äntligen beskrevs och boken nådde stora försäljningsframgångar. Efterhand har trilogin kommit att ses som en spännande skildring av en tid då tidigare generationers partänkande alltmer kom att ifrågasättas. Per Wästberg är författare och ledamot av Svenska Akademien. Hans rika produktion omfattar ett femtiotal böcker: romaner, noveller, lyrik, böcker om politik och kultur, dagböcker, memoarer och porträtt." [Elib]

The fly trap by Fredrik Sjöberg( Recording )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warm and humorous, self-deprecating and contemplative, The Fly Trap is a meditation on solitude, stillness, and the observation of beauty--be it found among insects or in art. Weaving a fascinating web of associations, histories, and personal memories, the book begins with Fredrik Sjöberg's own experience as an entomologist on a tranquil, remote Swedish island and pulls in the tales of past heroic scientific expeditions to Burma and the wilderness of Kamchatka. As confounded by his unusual love of collecting flies as anyone, Sjöberg pauses to reflect on a range of ideas--the passage of time, art, freedom--drawing into dialogue writers such as Bruce Chatwin and D.H. Lawrence, and the lives of collectors such as René Edmond Malaise, inventor of the Malaise trap. From the everyday to the exotic, The Fly Trap revels in the wonders of the natural world
Ice by Ulla-Lena Lundberg( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1947, a young priest, Petter, his wife and baby daughter, arrive by mail boat at a tiny island. They are to take over its drafty homestead from where Petter is to minister to the scattered community. In this evocative tale, Ulla-Lena Lundberg draws us into the minutiae of an austere yet purposeful life where the demands of self-sufficiency - cows to milk and sheep to graze - are tempered by the kindness of neighbours. With each season, the family's love of the island grows and when the winter brings ice a new and tentative link is created. Told through the eyes of Petter, the wholehearted if naive novice priest, and Mona, his tough-minded wife, a story unfolds that is as immersive as it is heartrending. Winner of the Finlandia prize and nominated for the Nordic Critics Prize, Ice was a huge bestseller in Finland
