LoveReading View on Loitering with Intent

Loitering with Intent, Muriel Spark's sixteenth novel, was first published in 1981 and Shortlisted for the Booker Prize in the same year.

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.

To celebrate the paperback release of the "simply superb" Come and Find Me, we have the opportunity to win a copy of the book with bookplates SIGNED by author Sarah Hilary. The competition will close on Friday 9 November with winners being notified by Friday 16 November.  "Simply superb, Come and Find Me is one hell of a clever, twisting, powerful story. This series is one of my favourites and DI Marnie Rome returns here in splendid style ... Sarah Hilary has the ability to take you into the words, to actually feel, to experience, and she sent my thoughts worming and writhing. At one point I found myself so exasperated and frustrated with one of the characters, it came as a shock when I came up for air and realised where I was. The ending buffeted me, surprised me, emotionally affected me, and a certain someone is still creeping around inside my mind. I already know that Come and Find Me will be one of my favourite reads of the year, and I think this is Sarah Hilary’s best yet, I simply can’t recommend this series highly enough." - Liz Robinson, Editorial Expert To have a chance of winning this fantastic prize, click the button below.
