get to know THE bachelors...,
This review is from: The Bachelors (Paperback)
What a delirious and total surprise to get to know Spark's early book The Bachelors (1960)! They are a talkative lot, those unmarried men, every one has his problems but also plenty of 'solutions'. They act the way we think bachelors act and react; much of the talk is about food, but also a lot of gossipping goes on - they are not a quiet bunch of distinguished gentlemen, oh no! One is a medium and thinking back of the book makes the hair on my head stand up again.... scary and incredibly innovative by this master of quiet suspense.
I love, love, love reading Muriel Spark and I am happy that I still have some of her writing to look forward to. I won't go into the details of the book; it has been described in a much better fashion than I can do (being non English). Just one advice: If you still have the tremendous pleasure of getting to know this writer; go and search for her books ASAP. Muriel Spark died in 2006 and her books might not be reprinted in a hurry.
