Unforgettably astounding and a joy to read, Memento Mori is considered by many to be the greatest novel by the wizardly Dame Muriel Spark. In late 1950s London, a group of aging eccentrics is brought together by a series of uncanny events. Lettie Colston is the first to receive an anonymous phone call from an insinuating voice reminding her that she must die. Soon, ten of Lettie’s friends also receive the call. In the flurry that results from these seemingly supernatural messages, a bizarre investigation is launched that reveals a network of deception binding the group, including such dark secrets as blackmail and adultery. As spooky as it is witty, poignant, and wickedly hilarious, Memento Mori may ostensibly concern death, but it is a book which leaves one relishing life all the more.

“Her best, I think…Chillingly brilliant.” Tennessee Williams
“Funny and macabre…Has delighted me as much as any novel I have read.” Graham Greene
“There is a Waugh-like brilliance to this novel…This last is the most remarkable of Miss Spark’s achievements. Nothing is forced, least of all the humor.” New Statesman
