I read this quickly over the course of two nights, but it kind of inspired an intellectual slow burn. The relationship of the two main characters in Fair Play seemed so alien to me, lacking sensitivity, sometimes lacking respect, but as I moved through the story, I started to realize how insular and judgmental I was being. Just because I need a specific kind of love or friendship with my partner doesn't mean that any relationship lacking those things will be automatically bad or unhealthy. I think about halfway through, I began to really warm to the two main characters, and began to appreciate the unique bond Jansson was describing.

Definitely a book I will pick up again.
