Travelling Light by Tove Jansson 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.
