The novel Fair-play by Tove Jansson, a great feminist figure celebrated throughout the world, is finally available in French.
Jonna and Mari, two artists and lifelong partners, share the top floor of a building in the port of Helsinki. Sharing coffee and cigarettes, the two women paint, write, discuss art and life, get passionate about cinema, argue, laugh heartily, travel, receive, remember the past and pick the future, one day at a time. Following in the footsteps of the Book of a Summer, Fair-play is one of the last books by the great Tove Jansson, in which the author combines the three passions of her life—work, love and freedom—with a mischievous melancholy. In the twilight of her work, Tove Jansson offers a profound lesson of youth, that of always making her life a work of art.
