The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
By (author) Muriel Spark; Afterword by Anna South
Miss Jean Brodie is a schoolmistress at the Marcia Blaine School for Girls in Edinburgh with advanced ideas not only about the education of her charges, but also her own place in the scheme of things. Muriel Spark’s wit and insight shine through this story of the 1930s, when Miss Brodie is in her prime and the group of her favourite pupils, the creme de la creme or ‘the Brodie Set’ are growing up in a world that contains Hitler as well as love. It was famously filmed with Dame Maggie Smith as Jean Brodie.
