"Oh my dear Guy, do you think these new young men read my books from charity?""Not from indulgence and kindness. But charity elevates the mind and governs the inward eye. If a valuable work of art is rediscovered after it has gone out of fashion, that is due to some charity in the discoverer, I believe. But I say, without a period-sense as well, no-one can appreciate your books."
Muriel Spark Memento Mori (1959)
I hope everyone's gearing up for Muriel Spark Reading Week?
