The Girls Of Slender Means by Muriel Spark


The Girls of Slender Means by Muriel Spark

Beautifully packaged reissue of one of Muriel Spark's best loved novels, The Girls of Slender Means

'Long ago in 1945 all the nice people in England were poor, allowing for exceptions'

In the May of Teck Club - a London hostel 'three times window shattered since 1940 but never directly hit' - the young lady residents do their best to act as if the war never happened. They practice elocution, and jostle one another over suitors and a single Schiaparelli gown. But behind the girls' giddy literary and amorous peregrinations they hide some tragically painful secrets and wounds.'You girls are my vocation . . . I am dedicated to you in my prime'
