The Driver's Seat (Paperback)
Muriel Spark is the master of the novella. Leave it to her to deliver a book so unexpected, so devastatingly shocking, in under 100 pages. Just read it!
--Caitlin— From Caitlin L. Staff Picks
You won't find any witches or vampires in Muriel Spark's oeuvre, but Spark is a master of the slow, excruciating build from the quotidian to the horrifying. I finished The Driver's Seat and wasn't sure if I wanted to burn it or turn back to page one and read it again. A truly singular gut-punch of a book.
