Illuminating Spark: Alan Taylor with Nicolette Jones
September 30 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm£10 – £12
The 100th anniversary of the birth of Muriel Spark has triggered renewed interest in her work.
Best known for The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Spark was a prolific writer of short stories, novellas, poetry, essays and biographies. The literary editor and critic Alan Taylor was Spark’s confidant and travel companion in her later years. His affectionate but searching memoir Appointment in Arezzo: A friendship with Muriel Spark received wide acclaim.
He will discuss his unique insights into Spark’s colourful life, acerbic personality and astringent writing, including her short stories.
In conversation with Nicolette Jones, writer, critic and broadcaster.
