Muriel Spark

A Far Cry From Kensington

A Far Cry from Kensington offers a wry send-up of the London publishing scene with its debtors, eccentrics, high-maintenance authors and bottomless well of hangers-on.
William Shakespeare

Antony & Cleopatra

Antony & Cleopatra is fast-paced, almost suspenseful (even though, it being a Shakespearean tragedy, we know how the major players will meet their end).
Mary Tudor, Bloody Mary

Jan Pienkowski

The Fairy Tales are also appropriate, despite their darker elements, for children who have perhaps overindulged on the sugar-coated Disney versions
Arnold Lobel

The Adventures of Frog and Toad

Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad Are Friends, published in 1970, is the first in a series of four books about these two famous friends
Wilkie Collins

The Moonstone

The Moonstone is a very long tale about a precious gem stolen from the brow of a Hindu deity that wreaks havoc on an English family
Elizabeth Taylor, author

Blaming

Blaming by Elizabeth Taylor is the story of an unlikely friendship that forms between Amy, an Englishwoman, and Martha, an American
