One of BBC's 100 Novels That Shaped Our World.

A tour de force of contemporary Scottish literature, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark is a compelling portrait of a woman’s dark quest for immortality.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition features an afterword by publisher Anna South.

Miss Jean Brodie is a rare breed of teacher – passionate, independent-minded and romantically inspired, with not the slightest care for convention. She soon garners a devoted following of six young girls, who will become known as ‘the Brodie set’, and begins to shape them in her own image. But Miss Brodie is more than just an individual with an intense desire to control and mould her girls. Beneath the facade of this self-possessed woman lie some sinister truths, and a keen interest in fascism . . .

Review:

She has established herself in the course of one sparkling lustrum. Miss Spark is indeed an author to be grateful for in our plutonian age, Joan Davenport, The Observer

Each of her sentences fulfils perfectly its own purpose, and there is never an extraneous joke. Miss Brodie makes excellent reading, Karl Miller, New Statesmen

No other woman writer of this generation has simultaneously attracted so much notice from the critics and achieved so much success with the public at large, Francis King, Time and Tide

Deliciously witty and eminently a ‘must’, John O’ London’s

Every word goes home like a well-aimed arrow. I doubt if there is a more original or morally aware novelist writing in English to-day, Peter Green, The Daily Telegraph

Book Description:

An elegant collector’s edition of Muriel Spark’s classic novel of one teacher’s terrible, far-reaching influence on the lives of her students.
