She was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1993 and a Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres in 1996.

Reviews
This slip of a novel includes, among other things, anonymous threats, a fraudulent book publisher, the pseudoscience of radionics, the metaphysics of evil, a love story and an endorsement of cats. But Spark's sly wit is what shimmers throughout.--Jennifer Szalai "The New York Times"
The divine Spark is shining at her brightest--pure delight.--Colm Tóibín
Mercurially funny, playful and mischievous.--Ali Smith "The Guardian"
Far Cry is, among other things, a comedy that holds a tragedy as an egg-cup holds an egg.-- "The Philadelphia Inquirer"
