Description

"Penguin Decades" bring you the novels that helped shape modern Britain. When they were published, some were bestsellers, some were considered scandalous, and others were simply misunderstood. All represent their time and helped define their generation, while today each is considered a landmark work of storytelling. Muriel Spark's "Memento Mori", published in 1959, is among the finest novels by one of the most witty and incisive British writers of recent times. It tells the acidly funny story of a group of elderly people who start to receive threatening phone calls telling them 'Remember, you must die' - opening up dark secrets, intrigues, duplicity and tragedy from their pasts.
