The Complete Short Stories is a collection to be loved and cherished, from one of the finest short-story writers of the twentieth century. All stories performed unabridged by three star readers: Juliet Stevenson, Richard E. Grant and Emilia Fox.

From the cruel irony of A member of the Family to the fateful echoes of The Go-Away Bird and the unexpectedly sinister The Girl I Left Behind Me, in settings that range from South Africa to the Portobello Road, Muriel Spark coolly probes the idiosyncrasies that lurk beneath the veneer of human respectability, displaying the acerbic wit and wisdom that are the hallmarks of her unique talent.

    " "The Portobello Road" is one of the best stories ever. It was the first thing I read by Spark, and I initially had no idea that it was written in the 50's, the style and politics seemed much more current, almost similar to Patrick Mccabe.Also hillarious is "The Black Madonna" "

    " this is a collection of ..... odd stories, all kinds of odd stories told with sparse prose. "

    " I didn't read all of these for class, but I certainly intend to read the rest of them. Spark has an incredibly distinctive style and a dark, witty sense of humor. The stories are excellent. "

    " This is my favorite book. I go back to it quite often. My favorite is "Bang Bang You're Dead." "
