Muriel Spark Reading Week
Simon & Harriet are hosting a Reading Week in April about all things Muriel Spark. I think Spark is a brilliant choice as her novels are all quite short so easily read in a week, her books are readily available & she wrote fiction & non-fiction. I'm going to swim against the fictional tide & reread her book on Emily Brontё, first published in 1960 & last read by me in the 1980s. It was written with Derek Stanford & examines the life & the work with special reference to the poetry. As you can see from the lovely badge created by Thomas, Muriel Spark Reading Week runs from April 23-29. Visit Simon & Harriet's blogs for all the details about how it will work.
I'm an avid reader who loves middlebrow fiction, 19th century novels, WWI & WWII literature, Golden Age mysteries & history. Other interests include listening to classical music, drinking tea, baking cakes & enjoying the antics of my cats, Lucky & Phoebe.
