Muriel Spark week

As you may remember, Sophie from Virago very kindly sent me a set of the Sparknovels which have been republished recently as Modern Classics, and I decided that it would be nice to have a Muriel Spark week on the blog.

So, do stop by this week when I will be re-reading Symposium and The Comforters and reading A far cry from Kensington and Loitering with intent.

I would also recommend the new biography of Muriel Spark by Martin Stannard which gives an excellent account of her life and an insight into the woman behind her writing.


  1. I loved the film the Prime of Miss Jean Brodie but have yet to read a Muriel Spark novel. Really should read her soon!

  2. I would love to see that film Mrs B - but only hugely expensive over here :(

  3. So, you mean a Muriel Spark week as opposed to a Barbara Pym one?!

    The Comforters is the only one of the four that I have yet to read so I'll be looking forward to your thoughts on that.

  4. Hehe - what was I thinking?! Well spotted Claire
