About the Book
Described by Gore Vidal as ‘a novel written at the top of her form and so unique’, Reality and Dreams concerns the delirious, egocentric film
director Tom Richards, who is recovering from injuries sustained while falling off a crane on set. His obsessive passion to make a film about a
simple young woman sucks his wife, daughters, lovers and friends into a maelstrom of destruction.
This is one of the 22 novels written by Muriel Spark in her lifetime. All are being published by Polygon in hardback Centenary Editions between
November 2017 and September 2018.
