Christopher Cazenove, one of England's finest actors, has starred on stage and TV in the US and Great Britain. He most recently starred in A Knight's Tale, Eye of the Needle and Jennie: Lady Randolph Churchill. His reading of An Unofficial Rose brings the comedic tone to life.

Iris Murdoch's novel deploys her gift of high comedy in a new field. she directs her wit, her irony, and her dazzling, often disturbing insights upon the complex life of a family. In doing so, she has produced what is in essence,a traditional "family novel." Iris Murdoch reveals a group of related lives that gravitate together like island universes. Listeners will be surprised by the resulting story.
