Description

Muriel Spark’s classic, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, is a brilliantly comic novel featuring one of the most unforgettable characters in all literature.

‘Give me a girl at an impressionable age, and she is mine for life . . .’ Passionate, free-thinking and unconventional, Miss Brodie is a teacher who exerts a powerful influence over her group of ‘special girls’ at Marcia Blaine School. They are the Brodie set, the creme de la creme, each famous for something – Monica for mathematics, Eunice for swimming, Rose for sex – who are initiated into a world of adult games and extracurricular activities they will never forget. But the price they pay is their undivided loyalty.

‘There is no question about the quality and distinctiveness of her writing, with its quirky concern with human nature, and its comedy’ William Boyd

‘Muriel Spark’s novels linger in the mind as brilliant shards’ John Updike
