By imparting a metaphysical element of mystery to the facts of her fiction, Muriel Spark has become well-known as one of the most enigmatic writers of her time. She has never been satisfied with photographic naturalism and even her realistic descriptions have an atmosphere of illusion. A self-conscious stylist, she always seems to sense a spiritual presence behind a physical substance. Mrs. Spark's international reputation as a writer of wit, perception and (sometimes supernatural) power is subjected to a sustained examination in analytical essays. This book gives an overall image of Mrs. Spark as a remarkably gifted writer.
