Martin Stannard

Biographer Martin Stannard tackles the grande dame of Scottish literature in his latest work - the late, great Muriel Spark. We were honoured to have her at the Book Festival shortly before she died; her performance sparkled with wit and lit up Charlotte Square. Here Stannard celebrates her life, captures the essence of her writing and marks her place in literary history.
