Journal Entry 1 by wingAnnimanniwing from Espoo, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Monday, March 31, 2008
From the back:
"Perhaps you know Patrick Seton? He's that dear little, sinister little medium one meets at spiritualist seances. Well, they've accused him of forgery: he's coming up for trial. And all the bachelors of Chelsea, Kensington and Hampstead are in a VHF of a flutter."

NB! My copy has a different cover.

This is the second Muriel Spark book I've _tried_ to read and then abandoned after the first few dozen pages. (The first one was The Ballad of Peckham Rye). I don't think I'll give her a third try.

Entertaining read when you realize it was written 50+ years ago. Our bachelors are much more dashing today. Very quirky characters, none of whom I warmed up to. I liked the spiritualist seances parts, wonder if this is how cults are born.

Released 6 yrs ago (11/1/2012 UTC) at highway, roadside in -- highways , rest stops etc, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

will release on a trip to the city and note location later
