“The precariousness of travel is revealed in this unnerving new collection of stories.”

Introduced by Ali Smith

Translated for the first time from the Swedish by Silvester Mazzarella

Translated into English for the first time, Travelling Light takes us into new Tove Jansson territory.
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 by an oddly intrusive child; an artist returns from abroad to discover that her past has been eerily usurped.
With the deceptively light prose that is her hallmark, Tove Jansson reveals to us the precariousness of a journey – the unease we feel at being placed outside of our millieu, the restlessness and shadows that intrude upon a summer.
