The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Hardback Book

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie Hardback

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library series

Hardback

Description

One of BBC's 100 Novels That Shaped Our World. A tour de force of contemporary Scottish literature, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark is a compelling portrait of a woman's dark quest for immortality. Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers.

These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover.

This edition features an afterword by publisher Anna South. Miss Jean Brodie is a rare breed of teacher - passionate, independent-minded and romantically inspired, with not the slightest care for convention.

She soon garners a devoted following of six young girls, who will become known as 'the Brodie set', and begins to shape them in her own image.

But Miss Brodie is more than just an individual with an intense desire to control and mould her girls.

Beneath the facade of this self-possessed woman lie some sinister truths, and a keen interest in fascism . . .
