9780141181431: The Ballad of Peckham Rye (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)

Dougal Douglas, M.A., was hired to bring vision into the lives of the workers in a Peckham Firm. And he did. To Peckham he introduced the wider horizon of tears, absenteism, fraud, blackmail, violence, and murder. With a light laugh, of course, for Dougal was born with the horns on his head.

Review:

"The best English novelist writing today".-- (London) Times Literary Supplement

About the Author:

Muriel Spark (born February 1, 1918) was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. She began writing seriously after the war, beginning with poetry and literary criticism. In 1947, she became editor of the Poetry Review. Her first novel The Comforters was published in 1957, but it was The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1962) which established her reputation. After living in New York for some years, she settled in Italy in the late 1960s. She became Dame Commander of the British Empire in 1993.
