Product description

Review

Muriel Spark's novels linger in the mind as brilliant shards, decisive as a smashed glass is decisive--JOHN UPDIKE "New Yorker "

My admiration for Spark's contribution to world literature knows no bounds. She was peerless, sparkling, inventive and intelligent - the creme de la creme--IAN RANKIN

A wholly original presence in modern literature--ANDREW MOTION

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

She has a receptive and wholly distinctive genius--A N WILSON "Spectator "
