Synopsis: Exhilarating, unpredictable, and up-to-the-minute, Spark's twentieth novel is "as intricate and bright as the toy of a child emperor" (John Updike). It introduces the reader to the sexual secrets, the eccentric imagination, and the troubled family of a movie director. Its voice sounds "unlike any other writer's: elegant, wise, sympathetic, satiric - at once darkly sinister and brightly chipper" (People).

Review: Reality and Dreams, Dame Muriel Spark's twentieth novel, is a masterpiece of restraint. It's a slender book, but such is Spark's skill that the superbly entertaining work conjures wholly the world of its characters with all the clarity and power imaginable from a book of any length. The story casts a famous English film director Tom Richards, his wife Claire, their beautiful daughter Cora and their unbeautiful daughter Marigold, a couple of sons-in-law, friends, et al, in an intelligent, sometimes brutally honest comedy of manners that swirls around Tom's movie projects, everyone's marital infidelities, the growing problem of "redundancy" in the workplace, and the slippery difference between art and life.
