Dame Muriel

Kill Fee reminds me that I posted an essay on Muriel Spark last year, and that now is the time for me to re-link to it. Here are the New York Times (“bleak and side-splitting”) and the Guardian (“curiously posh-Scottish camp”) obituaries, and here’s Stacey D’Erasmo’s 1997 interview.

UPDATE: Maud Newton has a great round-up of Spark criticism, including excellent essays by Ben Anastas and James Wood.
