Tove Jansson is most famous for writing the Moomins, but she also wrote a number of very highly regarded adult books (not in a sexy way!). This one's the most famous. It's a modern classic in Scandinavia apparently.
My girlfriend and I were new in town and wanted to join a book club, but they were all full so we decided to take matters into our own hands! The rules are: there are no rules. Except these, of course. - meetings around once monthly, - no genres off limit as long as the book's a good'un, - max of 15 people at any given meeting if we want things to stay manageable.
