SolstadenLl feel cold 35 Stars "JANSSON IS ONE OF FAVOURITE "is one of my favourite because she is wild dreamy flinty and if her novels are to be believed sensibly unafraid of all people and completely unconcerned about their thoughts and judgements She seems to be a mad sweet oner a people watching misanthrope who The Silent Pool (Erasmus Jones loved and tried to understand the individuals who bothered to approach herJansson was a Fenno Swede meaning she was part of a Swedish speaking minority in Finland White on white in a translucent wonderland right Regardless of whether subtle distinctions inform her work she s most well known for her children s novels and comics about a family of hippopotamusike creatures called Moomins which is an international cartoon novels and comics about a family of hippopotamus From Boss to Bridegroom (Smoky Mountain Matches, like creatures called Moomins which is an international cartoon on par with Barapapa Later inife Jansson wrote a series of novels ostensibly for adults I The Vineyard like these since her singular voice full of gentle harshness is direct It is the same voice but without a gloss for children In her adult novels she calmly observes absurdity madness and people behaving in very irrational but typical modes unmediated by the sweetness of cartoon figments Sun City centers around a retirement home in St Petersburg Florida Of all places a Fenno swede decided to write about my university town I knew it was a book about the elderly but the setting really surprised me At theiberal arts school I attended there were retirement homes and senior condominiums nearby some with overlapping economic interests board members and nebulous but vaguely shady though clearly contractual Wicked Nights links to the college Certain famous though obscure people retired to these places I remember Peter Handke s name adorned plaues and symposia materials around the college Though I never did see him in person it was clear that he was a resident nearby and to stave off boredom he occasionally came over to participate in academic matters as some sort of unofficial writer emeritus In another such exchange a friend and I had dinner with a retired Broadway actress She d married old money and settled nearby andiked to regale college students with stories of transatlantic New York City using cookie as a term of endearment for everyone Sun City reminded me of these strange but genuine undercurrents that run between the main population of retirees and everyone else in Florida coastal towns How the Florida coast is God s waiting room How all sorts of people from everywhere shed their once glamorous skins or sell off their businesses and since they can t afford California She Caught the Sheriff living or are just too weird for that other sunny state they rock in rocking chairs passing the rest of their time in Florida The book is a collection of some such retireesiving together and gently tormenting one another with their opposing uirks There s even a once famous character much Ten Tortured Words like the old Broadway star milling among the philistines of his generation polite patient and completely forgotten Did Jansson at one time occupy this role as a strange wild eyed Nordic retiree who did something vaguely fantastic but obscure known to no one in aand of sunny forgetfulness Or maybe she was a tourist visiting friends Either way she accurately captures this milieu Such an interesting novel set not in Jansson s usual haunts but in St Peterberg Florida Focusing on the Shut Up Train lives of the residents at a old age home Jansson as always brings her wonderful ability to chronicle the intricacies of human relationships in this poignant yet funny novel Her second novel for adults it isn t The Summer Book my favourite of her adult works but it is delightfully uirky and a real must for Jansson fans This was not my favorite book of Tove Jansson however I still enjoyed reading itIt was full of sunshine and I could feel ocean breeze while reading something that only Tove could do with her bookThe end of the book surprised me it was just the way the book startedike nothing really happened we don t go to any conclusions just stay in this Sun City NINE - Curse of the Kalingan living along and waiting for another trip ball or death of a neighbor.

Like Cannery Row but with old white people I d ike to help him but everything s become so difficult to explain the things I say are neither accepted or dismissed they re just something an old person saidWhen Tove Jansson visited the US in the early 70s she saw a Florida retirement community and was astonished by it an entire holiday resort where old people come to conserve whatever Semillas de Conflicto life they haveeft in a place where sunshine was guaranteed and the outside world wouldn t intrude The Saint Petersburg she sets Sun City in isn t the real Saint Petersburg FL any than Moominvalley is the real countryside outside Helsinki it feels Skin Rules like a dreamike The Secrets of Ivy Garden life suspended while waiting for the inevitable The old women and men in the retirement home carefully weighing their words to try and forge some sort of connection to the others or avoid it in some cases without breaking the illusion that everything is perfect are contrasted by Bounty Joe one of the few young people around who missed out on the hippie era and now only hopes for confirmation that Jesus is returning so he won t have to grow upJansson s prose is beautiful as always and the way she sketches characters by what they don t say or remember than what they do as if they ve spent theirives walking on eggshells and can t bear to break them now Two characters are strongly hinted to be gay as Jansson was and had to keep an open secret for years At the same time while I don t really mind that the plot feels sort of non existent there s something about the setting that just feels off I don t know if it s just that Jansson s experience with America is only barely substantial than Kafka s was or if it s deliberate to emphasize how artificial this sort of community comes across to an outsider Sleep is a blessing you can meet in many different ways Sun city is a constructed paradise in California where old people go to Indias Economic Policy live out theast days of their ife although perhaps it is of a hell Because it turns out that old people are still spiteful still envious still petty and still scheming Tove Jansson is as always fearless in her writing I know of no other author who writes ike her who constructs a novel The Prince and the Quakeress (Georgian Saga, like she does the plot does not exactly unfold but is told in anecdotes that sometimes seem to have no destination but once the book is finished you realise that you have read something complete and uietly beautiful I ve always wondered why books weren t written about the elderly yet so many books are written about the young Maybe we can allook back on youth but we don t know much about being old Maybe we only want to write about being old when we re old and when we get to be old we re too tired to write about it Or maybe being old is too depressing and boring while being young
Is Romantic And Idealized 
romantic and idealized maybe these books are being written but are just not very marketable or sexy so you never hear about themIn any case if you re interested in insightful entertaining fiction about the elderly you really can t do much better than this book which was written by Jansson when she herself was relatively old I think It is sad and Funny And Intensely Moving and intensely moving you ve read The Summer Book the only other Jansson book for adults that I ve read and one that s much popularly read than this one then you can expect some of the same elements the episodic nature of the novel though there is of an overall arc here and the final chapter definitely feels Run Away like the end of a novel the simple yet powerfulanguage the personalities that are very much alive In fact this book is just as good as The Summer Book if not slightly better and it s sad that it s so overlookedJansson writes about a retirement community in St Petersburg Florida the cast of characters are all uniue and they all get on each other s nerves in different ways though they do seem to enjoy it in a strange comforting way The sadness in this book is very rarely explicit but skillfully woven inside of the humor and the stories and the mood there is a general sense of fu.
