Sculptor's Daughter

Dive into Tove Jansson's spellbinding memoir and be transported to early 20th-century Helsinki where you'll experience the magic and fears of a childhood infused with the freedom and natural beauty of Finland.

Hailed by Ali Smith for its evocative prose, Jansson's memoir unveils the enchantments of a world where winter ice is a playground of mysteries, balalaika parties radiate warmth, and Christmas takes on epic proportions when viewed from a child's eyes.

A universal tale that speaks to the child in all of us, "Sculptor's Daughter" is ideal for fans of Tove Ditlevsen's "The Copenhagen Trilogy".
