Why We Love This

The Girls of Slender Means by Muriel Spark. NY: Knopf, 1963. First printing. A very good copy of the true First Edition of one of Muriel Spark's most characteristic novels. Slight foxing on front edge, in a classic jacket of the period, some aging on spine and back. Genteel poverty in war-ravaged London forces some young ladies to share a boarding house, "when all the nice people in England were poor, allowing for exceptions." Rave reviews by W. H. Auden, John Updike and Evelyn Waugh.
