One teacher on the list:
Miss Jean BrodieRead about the other teachers on Mullan's list.
Based on one of Muriel Spark's own teachers, Jean Brodie is dangerously charismatic. She talks of being in her "prime", and captures the spirits of a few chosen girls at a posh Edinburgh girls' school. She tells them about art and Italy, but her lessons often allow her to express her admiration for Mussolini's fascists.
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie is one of Ian Rankin's best books.
