9780099589259: The Black Prince

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY CANDIA MCWILLIAM

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:

"Murdoch is at the height of her powers in this novel, combining a complex plot with a heartrending analysis of the meaning of love" ( Good Book Guide)

"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)

"Iris Murdoch's marvellous, heroic novel...A gloriously rich tale" ( The Times)

From the Publisher:

It is witty and wise and provocative...brilliantly good' Evening Standard
