Aprašymas

It is no surprise that one of Muriel Spark’s most lively and entertaining works
would be her own memoir, Curriculum Vitae. Born to a Scottish Jewish father
and an English Presbyterian mother, Spark describes her childhood in 1930s
Edinburgh in brief, dazzling anecdotes. In one she recalls a cherished schoolteacher,
Christina Kay, who would later be used as the prototype for Miss
Jean Brodie. Spark boldly details her disastrous first marriage to Sydney
Oswald Spark (S.O.S.) — himself thirty-two, she just nineteen — whom she followed
to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and left behind to return to England. In
the midst of WWII, Spark took a bizarre position working in the disinformation
campaign of the British Secret Service, eliciting information from German
POWs to combat Nazi propaganda. She later moved to the Poetry Society of
London, where she mingled with literati and other intellectuals, befriended by
some (such as Graham Greene, an early supporter of her work) and sparring
with others. We experience Spark’s joy with the publication of her first
novel, The Comforters, her trials with other writers’ envy, and her emergence as
the most brilliant femme fatale of 20th-century English literature.
