Read full description of the books:
Nu este cel mai uşor lucru să faci cronica unei integrale de proză scrută pe care critica de-a lungul vremii a tot ridicat-o la rang de cinste. Muriel Spark este una din acele autoare cu care nu te întâlneşti des în literatura universală, care poate să surprindă o dramă fără să o emoţioneze cu surplusuri de hormoni. La începutul acestei luni ar fi împlinit 94 de ani dacă ar mai fi trăit, iar integrala sa de proză scurtă, deşi a apărut pentru prima dată în 2001 în UK, nouă abia recent ne-a căzut în mână.
Într-o primă fază trebuie spus că fiecare din cele 41 de povestioare ar merita un scurt-metraj de 15 până la 30 de minute, textele ajutând foarte mult la un posibil demers de gen, întrucât stilul scriitoricesc al lui Muriel Spark este dens, concentrat, la subiect, economicos, aşa cum te-ai aştepta să fie un scenariu.

Read information about the authorDame Muriel Spark, DBE was a prolific Scottish novelist, short story writer, and poet whose darkly comedic voice made her one of the most distinctive writers of the twentieth century. In 2008 The Times newspaper named Spark in its list of "the 50 greatest British writers since 1945".
Spark received the James Tait Black Memorial Prize in 1965 for The Mandelbaum Gate, the Ingersoll Foundation TS Eliot Award in 1992 and the David Cohen Prize in 1997. She became Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1993, in recognition of her services to literature. She has been twice shortlisted for the Booker Prize, in 1969 for The Public Image and in 1981 for Loitering with Intent. In 1998, she was awarded the Golden PEN Award by English PEN for "a Lifetime's Distinguished Service to Literature". In 2010, Spark was shortlisted for the Lost Man Booker Prize of 1970 for The Driver's Seat.
Spark received eight honorary doctorates in her lifetime. These included a Doctor of the University degree (Honoris causa) from her alma mater, Heriot-Watt University in 1995; a Doctor of Humane Letters (Honoris causa) from the American University of Paris in 2005; and Honorary Doctor of Letters degrees from the Universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, London, Oxford, St Andrews and Strathclyde.
Spark grew up in Edinburgh and worked as a department store secretary, writer for trade magazines, and literary editor before publishing her first novel in 1957. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, considered her masterpiece, was made into a stage play, a TV series, and a film.
