The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark
Miss Brodie is a mighty woman, forcefully politically
incorrect, an individualist. Her glamour, freethinking ideas and manipulative
charm hold dangerous sway over her girls at the Marcia Blaine Academy.
Her colleagues long to see the back of her. Miss Brodie confounds all
their attempts until betrayed by one of her girls, raised to bite the
hand that fed her. This is a novel about nonconformity and spiritual pride
and the nastiness of mankind.
