The Driver’s Seat by Muriel Spark (Fiction, 128 pages): The tension in The Driver’s Seat builds slowly, but the hint of menace is always there. It’s a book that can, perhaps, be best described as unnerving and off-kilter. Lisa, the protagonist, walks out of her life seemingly out of the blue, and into a vacation that is anything but ordinary. Spark never quite lays it all out for you, and this is a book where every line, every word, hints at another, and is quite heavy and ominous with meaning.
