by Muriel Spark - Find out more about the author

After young publishing assistant and war widow Mrs Hawkins crosses swords with writer Hector Bartlett the repercussions are swift. Set in postwar literary London, A Far Cry from Kensington is a mischievous and stylish tale of the cost of telling the truth.

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.

William Boyd was educated at Glasgow University and Jesus College, Oxford. His novels include A Good Man in Africa (1981), Any Human Heart (2002), Restless (2006), Ordinary Thunderstorms (2009) and Waiting for Sunrise (2012). He has worked extensively as a film and television screenwriter, often adapting his own work.
