The Abbess of Crewe
The Abbess of Crewe by Muriel Spark (Birlinn, 2018)

Classics

The second classic is The Abbess of Crewe by Muriel Spark (ISBN: 9781846974373, hardback). Published in 2018; first published 1974). A wickedly funny satire set in a convent, where it is time to elect a new abbess. The election campaign exposes an unexpected affair of the heart and some less-than-holy practices worthy of a John le Carre novel. Brilliant.
