Muriel Spark and Kensington
December 2, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm£3 – £20
It is 100 years since the birth of Dame Muriel Spark, acclaimed Scottish author, poet, literary critic and biographer – knighted for her contribution to British literature. The adaption for theatre and film of her novel “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” brought her considerable celebrity. This one novel caused several of her other works to be overshadowed, and yet critics have claimed that other novels are as powerful, even of better quality. One such is “A Far Cry from Kensington” written in the 1980s and looking back to the post-war years, when Muriel Spark first came to live in London.
