About the Author:

Dame Muriel Spark (1918-2006) wrote more than twenty books, including Memento Mori, The Ballad of Peckham Rye, and Symposium.

From AudioFile:

In Sparks dark novel, Miss Jean Brodie is a study in off-center individualism. As a teacher, she creates her own ideas of what her pupils need to know and takes pains to avoid the limits others may place upon her at a time when most women accepted these types of limitations. Her pre-feminist practices ultimately result in her being fired as a result of the betrayal of one of her students. Narrator Nadia Mays voices are an almost musical backdrop to the story; her accents dance gracefully with one another throughout all types of interaction. Miss Jean Brodies eccentricities and the authors use of time shifts are not lost in Mays reading. May keeps the reader right by her side.
