Muriel Spark, anyone?

I am on my fourth Muriel Spark and very impressed; she is lauded for her 'biting wit and satire'. Her psychological studies of people (she's very good with pettiness and internal dialogue) are wonderful.
I've read Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (definitely in my top 10), The Girls of Slender Means, The Bachelors, The Ballad of Peckham Rye. Luckily there are loads more!
Any other fans? Anyone have any recommendations? I don't think the library will have any more on the shelves so will probably go for ebooks.

The Abbess of Crewe is wonderful.

Great! Will look out for that one. Have you worked your way through her back catalogue?

My favourite of her books is "Far Cry from Kensington".

Loitering with Intent is brilliant, particularly if you like Miss Jean Brodie, Girls of Slender Means and Far Cry.

Love her! Also recommend Far Cry From Kensington.
