Reader's note

Muriel Spark's novels have their own unique flavour, it is an indefinable aroma which no description of plot of characterisation can possibly explain. To say that Memento Mori is about a coterie of elderly people, each of whom receives anonymour phone calls warning them of impending death or that The Girls of Slender Means is about a bunch of young women living in a Kensington women's club would seems almost beside the point. For the point is Muriel Spark herself and the originality of her wit, with it's vaguely sinister, almost macabre overtones and its delight in the unexpected shock which goes off under the reader's feet like the explosion of the unexpected bomb in the garden of the women's club!
