The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

SPARK, Muriel

SPARK, Muriel The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

Macmillan, 1961.

First edition. Green cloth with gilt lettering on the spine, in a pictorial dustwrapper. A very good copy in very good dustwrapper, some staining to the rear panel.

Spark's sixth and best known novel.
Reflecting on the novel, David Lodge has written "A truly original writer is a very rare bird... reviewing The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie in 1961 I declared myself "beguiledÂ…but not really stirred or involved or enlightened." It was some time before I realized that the disappointment was entirely my own fault and that the novel was a masterpiece."
