Boel Westin, professor of literature at the University of Stockholm, has written an affectionate biography [of Tove Jannson]. She wrote her doctoral thesis on the Moomin world and knew Jansson. In the book, Westin compares her to Shakespeare, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, even "Chekov spiced with Poe".
