And as we approach the end of the centenary year of the birth of Muriel Spark, there’s another chance to hear a special programme celebrating her life.

Recorded on location at The National Library of Scotland's International Style of Muriel Spark exhibition Janice's is joined by author Louise Welsh, Alan Taylor, author of Appointment in Arezzo: A Friendship with Muriel Spark, and Rosemary Goring, The Herald's Literary Editor and adapter of Muriel's work for radio. The discussion will be shaped, as in the exhibition, by the six locations she lived in throughout her life, from an Edinburgh childhood, through post-war bedsits in London, to her last home in a villa in Tuscany, exploring how those places and experiences influenced her writing.
