What grace and beauty she’s still displaying during the golden days and starlit nights of her absolutely marvelous career.” –The Washington Post“Ingeniously comic. . . . Spark has packed a multitude of twists and turns into this relatively brief novel, and the action skims along merrily from one surprising revelation to the next.” –Los Angeles Times Book ReviewThe Finishing School has all the ingredients of her best-known fiction.” –The New York Times“Delicious. . . . A deft new comic novel. . . . Spark remains a master of quick-stroke portraiture and trenchant moral investigation.” –The Seattle Times“A youthful academic comedy. . . . Her style . . . remains as sharp, even shocking, as it’s always been.” –The New York Times Book Review
