Meg Wolitzer

A droll, precise novel about a charismatic teacher and her group of favorite students. Witty, chilling, divine.

2018 was Spark’s centenary year and her most famous creation is still very much in her prime. Meet the ‘Brodie Set,’ six girls singled out by their teacher, to receive a worldly, and finally deadly, education at Marcia Blaine School in 1930s Edinburgh. As brilliant as it is brief, I find something new every time I re-read it. Feminism, fascism, the classic doubleness of a city that embraces the Old and New Towns. The crème de la crème!
