9780099429074: Under The Net (Vintage Classics)

Iris Murdoch's first novel is set in a part of London where struggling writers rub shoulders with successful bookies, and film starlets with frantic philosophers. Its hero, Jake Donaghue, is a drifting, clever, likeable young man who makes a living out of translation work and sponging on his friends. A meeting with Anna, an old flame, leads him into a series of fantastic adventures. Jake is captivated by a majestic philosopher, Hugo Belfounder, whose profound and inconclusive reflections give the book its title - under the net of language.

Product Description:

Under the Net

Review:

" Under the Net announces the emergence of a brilliant talent " ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Of all the novelists that have made their bow since the war she seems to me to be the most remarkable-behind her books one feels a power of intellect quite exceptional in a novelist" ( Sunday Times)

"A dazzling story, light and comic in touch" ( The Times)

"Iris Murdoch has imposed her alternative world on us as surely as Christopher Columbus or Graham Greene" ( Sunday Times)

"This is a comedy with that touch of ferocity about it which makes for excitement" (Elizabeth Jane Howard)
