Candia McWilliam and Alan Taylor discuss their admiration of Muriel Spark, her novels and her adventurous spirit. In this talk at the National Library, they also speak about working on the Muriel Spark Centenary project.
Alan Taylor was a great friend of Muriel Spark and is the series editor of Polygon's Muriel Spark Centenary Editions. Candia McWilliam wrote the introduction to a new edition of 'Robinson', Spark's second novel — a dark, vivid tale following the survivors of a plane crash on a mysterious island.
