Dame Lettie, a blue-blooded reformer, Godfrey - her rather irritating brother, and his once fabulous novelist wife Charmian. But who is the caller? And why are they reminding them of this final truth? It's unsettling and mysterious. The activity increases and soon a witch-hunt is in full force, with nobody beyond suspicion.
First published in 1959, Muriel Spark's startling and timeless novel is at once a crime story, a black comedy and an important meditation on mortality. Rediscover this classic as performed by Eve Karpf on the 100th anniversary of Muriel Spark's birth.

Disappointing story, one performance.

What made the experience of listening to Memento Mori the most enjoyable?

The performance was the saving grace of this listen - luckily each character was distinguishable.

Would you be willing to try another book from Muriel Spark? Why or why not?

I usually very much enjoy Spark. However, this was not quite what I was expecting - I felt it was never really resolved.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could have left this book without finishing it.

Any additional comments?

Perhaps it requires a second listen.
