Muriel Spark’s Women

County Buildings
Sun 23 Sep

Nowhere was Muriel Spark’s genius for displaying the contradictions and complexities of human emotion greater than in her depiction of her own sex. From The Abbess of Crewe to The Girls of Slender Means, we celebrate the witty, ingenious, inspiring, vain and self-deluding heroines of one of Scotland’s greatest writers. Our panel includes author and critic Lesley McDowell; intellectual historian and Professor of English Literature, Durham University, Patricia Waugh; and Gail Wylie, former secretary of the Muriel Spark Society.
