In her first ever story collection, Jansson revealed the clarity of vision and light philosophical touch that were to become her hallmark. From the good listener who begins to betray the secrets confided to her, to vignettes of a city storm or the slow halting of spring, these stories are gifts of originality and depth.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Her prose is wondrous: it is clean, deliberate; an aesthetic so certain of itself, it's breathtaking * Daily Telegraph *
A unique and authentic voice that speaks to the reader across time and culture, heart to heart -- Boyd Tonkin
(The Listener) is a masterpiece of subtlety and simplicitiy. The rest of the stories in this collection are every bit as crisp, ironic, elegant and ruthless * Saga Magazine *
