Year: 1998-04-17
"Long ago in 1945 all the nice people in England were poor, allowing for exceptions," begins The Girls of Slender Means, Dame Muriel Spark's tragic and rapier-witted portrait of a London ladies' hostel just emerging from the shadow of World War II. Like the May of Teck Club itself—"three times window shattered since 1940 but never directly hit"—its lady inhabitants do their best to act as if the world were back to normal: practicing elocution, and jostling over suitors and a single Schiaparelli gown. The novel's harrowing ending reveals that the girls' giddy literary and amorous peregrinations are hiding some tragically painful war wounds. Chosen by Anthony Burgess as one of the Best Modern Novels in the Sunday Times of London, The Girls of Slender Means is a taut and eerily perfect novel by an author The New York Times has called "one of this century's finest creators of comic-metaphysical entertainment."

Latimer, the narrator of The Lifted Veil, possesses an uncanny ability to see into the minds of others and to divine the future, including the moment of his own death. The gift of being able to read the private thoughts and emotions of his fellow men soon becomes a curse to Latimer, for he is horrified by what he discovers. Afflicted by his burden of knowledge, he is driven to marry the cold-hearted coquette Bertha - the only person whose mind seems closed to him, until it is too late. This volume also includes George Eliot's only other short fictional work; the satirical fable Brother Jacob, in which the mercenary schemes of a devious confectioner are unconsciously thwarted by the childlike innocence of his 'idiot' brother.
