The Abbess of Crewe by Muriel Spark

Posted by Irish in Review1 Comment

Publisher: New Directions Publishing Corporation
Publication Year: 1995
ISBN: 0811212963
Format: Paperback
Pages: 106
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
The Abbess of Crewe by Muriel Spark is a lukewarm satire that uses a nunnery to retell the events of Watergate. Its a short book and yet I found a hard time getting into it. Maybe I just hard a hard time picturing Nixon as an Abbess. I don’t know. The plot and writing were solid but this wasn’t a book that I was able to lose myself in. Not a book that I would recommend. Nor am I sure if I’ll try another book by this author.
