About this book


After an opening chapter on Muriel Spark's life and career and a chapter on the distinctive problems of reading a novel by Muriel Spark, the book offers an account of the work of this novelist from The Comforters (1957) to A Far Cry from Kensington (1988). This new study makes an attempt to define the idiosyncratic and sometimes unsettling qualities of one of the most important and interesting English writers of the past thirty years. '...Norman Page has done both Muriel Spark and her readers a great service: he has taken her seriously.' Judy Spoxton '...a revential and judicious essay.' Lorna Sage.
