About this book

Iris Murdoch was the author of twenty-six bestselling novels. Her many love affairs, her war-work with UNRRA, her move from early communism to Thatcherism, her later life as a secular saint, her sad decline from Alzheimer's - all these events are detailed in this accessible chronological account of a world-famous and much loved British writer.

Reviews

'This title would be a useful addition to any university library supporting courses in contemporary fiction, women's writing and philosophy. The popular appeal of Murdoch's writing may also make this title of interest to public libraries.' - Linda Kemp, Reference Reviews
