Muriel Spark couldn't resist poking fun at the love lives of a group of London bachelors. Her cast of characters are drawn into a complicated story of fraud, blackmail and attempted murder. Along the way there is a crisis pregnancy, a gay priest, an attempt to coerce an abortion and much angst over free love. Spark did not write explicit sex scenes but she did explore the dilemmas of sexual attraction in a witty, amusing fashion. If you are a fan of controversial literature and collect banned books, this novel is one you want on your library shelf.
