    Most recent staff pick: Memento Mori by Muriel Spark (ebook available)This gem deals with the bleak subject matter of death through the insight and poignancy of Spark’s delightfully funny tone. In 1950s London, a group of elderly friends find themselves shaken up after receiving regular anonymous phone calls with the messenger stating, “Remember you must die.” One by one, each character starts to wonder if he or she will be the next one to face the end. In this spooky, satisfying tale full of oddballs, Spark embraces a typically unsavory topic by crafting a story you won't want to put down.
