The Ballad of Peckham Rye, Hardback Book

The Ballad of Peckham Rye Hardback

Part of the The Collected Muriel Spark Novels series

Hardback

Description

A bewitching comic masterpiece, The Ballad of Peckham Rye relates the tale of one Dougal Douglas, who is taken on by a small textile firm to 'bring vision into the lives of the workers'.

A devilishly charismatic force of nature who likes nothing better than to stir things up, he takes great delight in wreaking havoc with the locals.

Nervous breakdowns, sexual misdemeanours, a heart attack and murder ensue . . . This is Spark at her most ingenious. The publishers acknowledge investment from Creative Scotland towards the publication of this book. Supported by the Muriel Spark Society.
