Loitering with Intent, Paperback

Loitering with Intent Paperback

Part of the VMC series



Art, reality and the strange ways the two imitate one another are at the core of Muriel Spark's delightful Loitering with Intent, first published in 1981.

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 when its scenes begin coming true.

Generating hilarious turns of phrase and larger-than-life characters (especially Sir Quentin's batty mother), Spark's inimitable style make this literary joyride thoroughly appealing.
