Muriel Spark should have got the Nobel Prize for Literature. Many would agree that her work developed and indeed improved after this 1961 book. It fulfilled all the criteria for successful writing - 1) Apposite title 2) Wonderful opening paragraph 3) Clear delineation of characters who "lived on the page" 4) Involving plot 5) Genre crossing i.e. social history, educational comment, a book about "growing up". Wonderful last sentence! Everyone enjoyed it and are now very keen to read more of her work!
