The Comforters

Introduction by Allan Massie
Series Editor Alan Taylor
by Muriel Spark - Find out more about the author

Caroline Rose has a problem. She hears voices and the incessant tapping of typewriter keys, and she seems to be a character in a novel . . . A comedy of errors, a crime novel, a book about books, Spark’s debut remains as otherworldly and mischievous as it was when first published sixty years ago.

This is one of the 22 novels written by Muriel Spark in her lifetime. All are being published by Polygon in hardback Centenary Editions between November 2017 and September 2018.

Muriel Spark was born in Edinburgh in 1918. A poet, essayist, biographer and novelist, she won much international praise, including being twice shortlisted for the Booker Prize. The Times placed her eighth in its list of the Fifty Greatest British Writers Since 1945. She died in Tuscany in 2006.

Allan Massie CBE (born 1938) is a Scottish journalist, columnist, sports writer and novelist. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, he has lived in the Scottish Borders for the last twenty-five years.
