A Far Cry From Kensington has many fans amongst the critics but what did Kate’s book club make of it? Did they fall in love with Muriel Spark’s genteel farce set in the postwar London publishing industry? Or did they need more convincing of Spark’s genius?
For an informed opinion we interview Hannah Griffin of the Spark Challenge Book Group, and find out what it’s like being part of a book group who only read a single author’s work.
We finish with the usual round of recommendations to help you find your perfect book club read.
