Muriel Spark
back  

A typed 'curriculum vitae' from 1953, a difficult period when Muriel Spark was trying earn enough money to support herself while writing at the same time. She found publishers for her critical work, two of whom went bankrupt. 'Lived on tinned soup', she writes, 'until I found a third publisher who was solvent ... Have rather gone off soup since'.
