Product description


"A rare writer...wickedly funny...astonishingly talented...and truly inimitable."

-- "San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle"

"Completely, searingly original."

-- "Independent (London)"

"I am dazzled by The Bachelors. It is the cleverest and most elegant of all Mrs. Spark's clever and elegant books."

-- "Evelyn Waugh"

"Incomparable reader May's gentle British accent perfectly animates The Bachelors, a novel of sophisticated wit."

-- " Booklist"

"One of the most decisive and unmistakable voices in contemporary fiction...Spark concocts a present-tense deadpan that is at once lyrical, extravagant, and gruesomely funny."

-- "New Yorker"

Spark is always a great read.

-- "Library Journal" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
