A Celebration of Muriel Spark in New York City!

February 1, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$22

A Celebration of Muriel Spark with Rivka Galchen, Joseph O’Neill, Gerald Howard and Joseph Kanon.

A tribute reading to celebrate the centenary of Muriel Spark, “whose wit produced effects and insights only matched in contemporary fiction by the glittering jests of Nabokov,” wrote Shirley Hazzard. The author of The Prime of Miss Jean BrodieThe Ballad of Peckham RyeMemento Mori and The Girls of Slender Means, among many other works of fiction, “Muriel Spark wrote some of the most perfect novels of the last century,” wrote Joseph O’Neill. “A fellow practitioner cannot read her without delight, a technician’s envy and finally a sense of responsibility to not commit the blunder of allowing her name to fall into minorness.”
