Description - Symposium by Muriel Spark

This is the story of a dinner party, a knot of people with pasts and connections which at first seem few but are later found to be many ...The prevailing mood is urbane: the wine is poured, the talk continues, and all the time the ice on which the protagonists' world rests is being thinned from beneath by boiling emotions and ugly motives ...No living writer handles the tension between formality of expression and the subversiveness of thought more elegantly' Candia McWilliam, Independent on Sunday
