A funny and clever novel about art and reality and the way they imitate each other, from the author of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. With an introduction by Mark Lawson.

Would-be novelist Fleur Talbot works for the snooty, irascible Sir Quentin Oliver at the Autobiographical Association, whose members are all at work on their memoirs. When her employer gets his hands on Fleur’s novel-in-progress, mayhem ensues as its scenes begin coming true… Spark’s inimitable style make this literary joyride thoroughly appealing.

‘The most gloriously entertaining novel since The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.‘ AN Wilson, Spectator

‘I read this book in a delirium of delight … robust and full-bodied, a wise and mature work, and a brilliantly mischievous one.’ New York Times Book Review
