Muriel Spark, Religion and Exile at Edinburgh International Book Festival
August 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am£10 – £12
Muriel Spark described herself as ‘a constitutional exile’ who, though educated in a Presbyterian school and raised observing Jewish rituals, opted to convert to Catholicism. Gabriel Josipovici and Kapka Kassabova, who have written introductions to Spark’s The Mandelbaum Gate and Territorial Rights, consider how she deals with such disparate elements in her fiction. Chaired by Alan Taylor.
