About this title

Synopsis:

Fair Play Two women, both artists, live and work on opposite sides of a large apartment building. They have loved and argued for decades. Yet no matter how many times they've played the game, it is always capable of surprising them. Winner of the 2009 Bernard Shaw Prize for Translation. Full description

Review:

"This novel is about creativity from the very start--about how to take a day . . . and make it really new and fresh, no matter what age you are, what life you're in." --Ali Smith, From the Introduction

"Jansson reveals the ambiguities in every encounter. There are no easy moral judgments. Only the very finest art can show us so many shades of psychological nuance, yet make them visible with such clarity." --Damion Searls, Harper's

"Jansson is . . . content to let the narrative almost disappear into what Hegel called the 'prose of the world' the beauty of the day-to-day. It is here . . . that we find the true meaning of the novel." --Andreas Campomar, The Times Literary Supplement

"A book about love--tender, eccentric and fiercely independent. It feels a privilege to read it." --Esther Freud
