Editor’s Note

“An overlooked classic…”An overlooked classic of half-baked espionage. Spark’s wicked humor and eye for detail is as sharp as the Coen Brothers, while her sense of irony is as expansive as Graham Greene at his best.

From the Publisher

“Once in a while . . . a book comes along that is beautifully put together and effortlessly entertaining; Muriel Spark’s Territorial Rights is such a novel.” —The New York Times

Robert wants nothing more than to become a serious art historian. But his hopes for a staid academic life are put on hold when he’s driven from London to Venice to escape one lover and seek out another: the enigmatic Bulgarian refugee Lina Pancev. In Venice, Robert encounters a grand carnival of lust, lies, blackmail, cocktail parties, and regicide. As he chases Lina, his heart’s desire, the city itself provides a priceless education in love, art, and beauty.    Witty yet elegant, Territorial Rights is a celebration of human imperfection and complexity, with as many shifting identities, wardrobe changes, and sumptuous settings as a comic opera.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Muriel Spark including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s archive at the National Library of Scotland.
