    2. 3.5One of those short story collections in which most pieces are about middle class writers and artists But with the word art in the title, can one really complain The nature descriptions are always lovely Unlike some of the pieces in Eng lang Jansson compilation A Winter Book, which have that boring, cold brittleness typical of contemporary litfic short stories, these stay just on the right side of that and mostly work rather well YMMV Art in Nature The elderly caretaker of an outdoor exhibitio [...]

    5. Finnish writer Tove Jansson is always a revelation Known for her children s books about the Moomintrolls Her books of short stories for grown ups and short novels are evocative, funny and sometimes painful The most recent volume to be translated into English is Art in Nature This collection, than the others seems to focus on people who are either adrift or unwilling to move She explores with a rare delicacy the play of emotions one person may experience in an hour or a lifetime, often the petty [...]










    6. These stories, like all of Tove Jansson s writing, are so subtle and read so smoothly, that you can easily read the whole lot in one sitting I had to make myself read one a day so that I didn t end up gliding on the surface Jansson always amazes me with the way she offers a glimpse of a certain problem, a moment or a whole life and that done almost dispassionately, with such precision And yet her language is so rich and there is no lack of warmth in it, a combination that very few authors can ac [...]



    7. Every time I pick up a Tove Jansson book I feel like a fresh breeze has blown through my mind and refreshed everything Her short stories are poetic and songlike, using different tones to set up a small complete world in each one Despite the title this is a collection of darker stories than usualbut also ones that make me reflect on my own pattern of thoughts I strongly felt Tove quietly sharing with us her own struggles and lessons from experiences in her own life.Thoroughly recommend



    8. The entirety of Art in Nature and Other Stories has been translated by Thomas Teal, who won the Rochester Best Translated Book Award in 2011 This prize sets him in wonderful stead to translate one of Finland s finest authors and to introduce of her stories to a wider readership.Art in Nature and Other Stories comprises eleven short stories, all of which are mesmerising from the outset The title story, Art in Nature , tells of a very old caretaker who has been put in charge of looking after a la [...]


    9. In this Tove100 year that celebrates the work of Tove Jansson, I have Claire McAlpine to thank fo a review of Art in Nature that had me very curious about this collection of stories The characters are especially vivid, often quirky, and I can t help but see a visual artist s hand in the way they take shape.


    10. Short stories have to be very good to be worth anything These are OK, but I didn t get involved in any of the situations, and importantly didn t care about any of the characters Maybe the translation got in the way.





    11. Art in Nature presents us with extraordinarily intimate portraits of Finns and others caught up in a variety of situations Taking its English title from the first of these eleven offerings by Tove Jansson, its original Swedish title was actually drawn from the fifth story, The Doll s House I can only assume it was retitled to avoid confusion with Ibsen s play A Doll s House, but it is just as apt as a label for the whole collection because many of the subjects have a connection with artistic end [...]


    12. Frankly disappointing Overall it has 2 3 worthwhile phrases for the rest, it s pretty boring And believe me I really don t get bored easily, I like philosophical discussions, long descriptions and I actually like Tove Jansson a lot as a writer of children s books, an artist and as a personality This was sort of my first attempt at reading her adult fiction and I m very sad to acknowledge that It didn t live up to my expectations


    13. Sama armas kui alati M ned lood on eesti keeles ilmunud S numites vist siis, ma teisi pole eesti keeles lugenud , m ned mitte Kevadekingitus iseendale l ks asja ette.
