Fair Play by Tove Jansson, translated from Swedish by Thomas Teal

Tove Jansson is best known for her Moomin children’s books, but she also wrote adult novels, like this one. Fair Play, published in 1989, is about Mari and Jonna, a writer and artist who have lived together for decades. This domestic, slice-of-life story is inspired by her relationship with her partner Tuulikki Pietilä, aka Tooti, whom she lived with for 45 years. It’s a cozy “celebration of everyday queerness.”
