Review:

"She was always in the front rank of unpredictable, original, serious writers exploring the deeper themes of ancient as well as contemporary experience" ( Guardian)

"Iris Murdoch really knows how to write - she can tell a story, delineate a character, catch an atmosphere with deadly accuracy" (John Betjeman)

"I suspect that when the intellectual map of our own times comes to be sketched out, Iris Murdoch will occupy a position analogous to Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky... Murdoch writes better than anyone about the condition of being love: both the ecstatic joys of it and its capacity to turn otherwise decent individuals into monsters of selfishness and cruelty... Her vision of the world is heart-rending, but ultimately celebratory" (A.N. Wilson)

Book Description:

A witty, elegant comedy of errors to rival any of Shakespeare's
