Muriel Spark e-books

Muriel Spark Reading Week is fast approaching & as well as reading Spark paperbacks & hardbacks or listening to Spark audio books, you can now read Spark e-books.

Open Road Integrated Media have released eight titles by Muriel Spark as e-books including her best-known novel, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. Other titles include her only play, Doctors of Philosophy, & novels including The Only Problem, The Mandelbaum Gate, & Territorial Rights. The e-books are available for a variety of e-readers including Kindle, Kobo, Sony & are available from all the usual retailers. Unfortunately they’re not available in Australia but I already have my Muriel Sparks lined up for Reading Week.

More information about Open Road Integrated Media & their Muriel Spark project can be found here. They also have a blog that includes an excerpt from The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.

I usually post a book review on Saturdays but I finished Emile Zola’s Germinal last night & I’m still feeling a little overwhelmed by it. It’s a wonderful & terrible novel & I need to let it all sink in for a day or two before I attempt to write about it. So, Sunday Poetry tomorrow & my thoughts on Germinal early next week.

  1. I have never read Zola before so will look forward to your review. I posted up my Muriel Spark read a couple weeks ago as my sister is visiting me here in Tasmania from California during the actual week. It was the first time I had read a M Sparks book and I enjoyed this one. Will enjoy the other bloggers postings. All the best, Pam travellinpenguin.blogspot.com

  2. As you already know because of my mistakes in english, I usually speak french and I'm actually a french literature teacher. My students are seventeen, eighteen years old. They are not always pleased with my choices, but they usually recognise Zola's magnificent style! I wonder how it sounds in english…

    About Muriel Spark, I would like to point to you and to your readers that there is an hour long interview of Dame Muriel Spark realized in 1999 by the canadian literary journalist Eleanor Wachtel for Writers and company. I find it quite interesting!

    HAve a nice week- end!

  3. I'll have to see which Spark you read, Pam. I've only read a few of her novels & it was a long time ago so I'm looking forward to reading other reviews during MSRW. I hope you're inspired to read Zola but Germinal is not a happy book so maybe something like Ladies' Paradise would be a better first choice.

  4. Translations can be tricky, I agree, & as I don't read French I have to rely on the translator as I'm never going to be able to compare. I didn't notice anything too jarring in Germinal & I was so caught up in the story that it would have taken a lot to stop me. Thanks for the link to the interview. I'll have a look at it & pass on the link.
