In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all'. These five stories amply display Muriel Spark's extraordinary talent; her cool, biting humour and unique vision of human nature - all the trademark Spark obsessions are here, and much more besides.
