The Finishing School

By (author) Muriel Spark

‘One of her funniest novels . . . Spark at her sharpest, her purest and her most merciful’ ALI SMITHIn The Finishing School Muriel Spark is once again at her biting, satirical best. On the edge of Lake Geneva in Switzerland, a struggling would-be novelist and his wife run a finishing school of questionable reputation to keep the funds flowing. When a seventeen-year-old student’s writing career begins to show great promise, tensions run high. A keen portrait of devouring regret, psychological unravelling and the glittering promise of youth, The Finishing School is the perfect natural partner to Muriel Spark’s most famous novel The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.

Reviews of The Finishing School

An eloquent, subtle, poetic exploration of what words are and what they do to us. Enchanting, devastating, genius
