Poignant, hilarious, and spooky, Memento Mori addresses old age.

‘Remember you must die’ says the telephone caller. This is the message communicated in a series of anonymous calls made to many elderly people, including; 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.

'Muriel Spark's novel may be about the various physical and mental afflictions of old age, but far from being depressing or morbid, it is a wonderfully funny and exhilarating read.'
The Guardian

‘At once a hilarious farce and one of English literature’s most moving portraits of old age.’
Sunday Telegraph
