    Fair Play

    The art of loving, creating, and living is examined in this group of quietly moving, “discreetly radical” episodes from the lives of two artists. This is the first US publication of Thomas Teal’s prize-winning translation. “A book about love—tender, eccentric and fiercely independent. It feels a privilege to read it.”—Esther Freud

    The True Deceiver

    A story of manipulation and deceit set in the depths of the Swedish winter, The True Deceiver is unlike anything else Tove Jansson wrote. “I loved this book. It’s cool in both senses of the word, understated yet exciting, and with a tension that keeps you reading.” —Ruth Rendell
