by Muriel Spark
Edited by Penelope Jardine
Part of the Virago Modern Classics series
Paperback / softback
The Observing Eye is a collection of Muriel Spark's brilliant asides, sayings, and aphorisms.
No other writer can hold a candle to her wry, puckish observations:'Neurotics are awfully quick to notice other people's mentalities.''It is impossible to persuade a man who does not disagree, but smiles.''The sacrifice of pleasure is of course itself a pleasure.''Be on the alert to recognize your prime at whatever time in your life it may occur.''Ridicule is the only honourable weapon we have left.'Spark's striking insights are precise and unforgettable - they will make you laugh and nod in agreement, with a wicked smile on your face.
Her wise words never fail to hit exactly the right note.
