Muriel Spark is 'a wholly original presence in modern literature' (Andrew Motion). This collection, which contains all her published short stories together with some new writing, amply displays Muriel Spark's extraordinary talent; her cool, biting humour and unique vision of human nature. Ghosts and judges, priests, murder and French chateaux: all the Spark obsessions are here, and much more besides.
