We'll all be doing lots of reading this week, both on blogs and in books, so I thought I'd offer up a different view of Spark - with a selection of covers. These are all her novels, in order of publication, although the covers are not all first editions. I just picked a selection to demonstrate the wide variety of styles which she has been given. Your thoughts, please!
I love the quirky old Penguin covers - exemplified by the first one below, The Comforters - which seem to get across something of Spark's style. But I think my favourite might be Memento Mori, which was a Time book club edition... how about you? Favourite cover from those below? Which do you think accurately convey the sort of novels Spark writes? Any favourites which I haven't featured?
Head over to Harriet's tomorrow, for more Muriel Spark Reading Week fun.
Oh, and because I wanted to get it in somewhere this week, Pam sent me the link to this excellent interview with Muriel Spark. I couldn't get the audio to work, but the transcript is great.
