Loitering with Intent Synopsis

When Fleur Talbot becomes the secretary of the Autobiographical Association - a gathering of eccentric, egomaniacal upper-class twits led by the malevolent Sir Quentin - she begins to notice that the plot of her own novel is foreshadowing real life. Mayhem and murder ensue with gloriously entertaining results. 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.
