Staff Reviews

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!


— 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.


— From October Staff Picks: Spooky, Creepy, Trick-or-Treat-y!


Driven mad by an office job, Lise flies south on holiday -- in search of passionate adventure and sex. In this metaphysical shocker, infinity and eternity attend Lise's last terrible day in the unnamed southern city that is her final destination.
