Publisher's Summary

It is 1945; a time of cultural and political change, and also one of slender means. Spark's evocative and sharply drawn novel focuses on a group of women living together in a hostel in Kensington who face new challenges in uncertain times. The novel is at once dramatic and character-based, and shows Muriel Spark at the height of her literary powers.
Juliet Stevenson reads with her customary wit and intelligence this powerful masterpiece. Rediscover The Girls of Slender Means in audiobook on the 100th anniversary of Muriel Spark's birth.

Slender but spirited

If you like Muriel Spark, you will relish this. Read with great precision. A dry delight. Such a distinctive writing style works well as an audio book. Every word matters.
