NTA Longlist: The Woman Who Borrowed Memories by Tove Jansson translated by Thomas Teal & Silvester Mazzarella

The Woman Who Borrowed Memories by Tove Jansson, translated from the Swedish by Thomas Teal & Silvester Mazzarella (New York Review Books)

Jansson-Woman-Who-Borrowed-Memories_1024x1024Thomas Teal and Silvester Mazzarella have brought Tove Jansson’s stories from The Woman who Borrowed Memories into a richly modulated English that suits her compact tales of the small pleasures and terrors that inflect both young and old, artist and outsider. Jansson’s attention to the small shifts in light and darkness are rendered with correspondingly nuanced prose that helps the reader see both in and out of the windows of her tiny, marvelous tales.
