One of the BBC''s ''100 Novels That Shaped Our World''

''A sublimely funny book ... it is a book to be read by all ... unforgettable and universal'' Candia McWilliam

Romantic, heroic, comic and tragic, unconventional schoolmistress Jean Brodie has become an iconic figure in post-war fiction. Her glamour, unconventional ideas and manipulative charm hold dangerous sway over her girls at the Marcia Blaine Academy - ''the crème de la crème'' - who become the Brodie ''set'', introduced to a privileged world of adult games that they will never forget. Muriel Spark''s The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie was adapted into a successful stage play, and later a film directed by Ronald Neame and starring Maggie Smith.
Muriel Spark has written poetry, stories, and biographies as well as her remarkable series of novels. She is an honorary member of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters and in 1993 was created OBE. A native of Scotland, she now lives in Italy.
