Muriel Spark was one of the greatest fiction writers of the 20th Century – named no. 8 in The Times list of the greatest British writers since 1945. Her novels include Memento Mori, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, The Mandelbaum Gate and A Far Cry from Kensington. Though she published an autobiography – Curriculum Vitae – in 1992, she remained an enigma even to some who thought they knew her well. In Spark’s centenary year, in a talk chaired by Robin Baird-Smith, who was her publisher for ten years, Ali Smith reflects on a writer of genius.
