Fair play by Tove Jansson

I’m just going to come out and say that I’m a gay man in love with #tovejansson This insanity began with watching and reading #themoomins in Spanish and Hebrew. And then of course falling in love with her “adult” stories is a big part now as well. I imply the idea of adult because her stories have a very #pureand #childlike feeling attached to them. This isn’t innocent in a Peter Pan kind of way. Innocence was indeed lost here and now it’s time for a “return” acknowledging what you’ve been through and how it never gets better or worse. It just gets. Mari and Jonna in this book, they know a thing or two about that. They have chosen to live in this #solitaryisland They can’t completely isolate themselves let alone want to. It’s one of those books where nothing seems to happen but yet everything is happening in front of you… #highlyrecommended#fairplay #jansson #klovharun #finland#swedish #rentspel #solitaryislands#isolation #twowomen #art #porvoo#pellinki #pietilä #finlandssvensk #lgbt
