A Far Cry from Kensington

By Muriel Spark

After young publishing assistant and war widow Mrs Hawkins crosses swords with writer Hector Bartlett the repercussions are swift. Set in postwar literary London, A Far Cry from Kensington is a mischievous and stylish tale of the cost of telling the truth.

This is one of the 22 novels written by Muriel Spark in her lifetime. All are being published by Polygon in hardback Centenary Editions between November 2017 and September 2018.

The introduction is by William Boyd, educated at Glasgow University and Jesus College, Oxford. His novels include A Good Man in Africa (1981), Any Human Heart (2002), Restless (2006), Ordinary Thunderstorms (2009) and Waiting for Sunrise (2012). He has worked extensively as a film and television screenwriter, often adapting his own work.
