9780099283997: The Black Prince

The Black Prince is both a remarkable thriller and a story about being in love.

Bradley Pearson, narrator and hero, is an elderly writer with a 'block'. Finding himself surrounded by predatory friends and relations - his ex-wife, her delinquent brother, a younger, deplorably successful writer, Arnold Baffin, Baffin's restless wife and engaging daughter - Bradley attempts to escape. His failure to do so and its aftermath lead to a violent climax and a most unexpected conclusion.

Review:

- Shortlisted for the Booker Prize - With an Introduction by Candia McWilliam - "A source of wonder and delight... No summary can do justice to the rich intricacy of character and incident with which Miss Murdoch crowds every page." --"Spectator " - "This is great Murdoch. It rings as clear as "The Bell"... her humour is all the more achingly funny because she keeps it on the edge of our vision." --"Daily Mail "
