9780140028485: The Time of the Angels

Carel is widowed rector presiding over a London church destroyed during the war. The rectory is home to an array of residents: his daughter, Muriel; his beautiful invalid ward, Elizabeth; their West Indian servant, Pattie; Eugene, a Russian emigre, and his delinquent son, Leo. Carel's brother, Marcus, is co-guardian of Elizabeth, but his attempts to get closer to the rector are constantly rebuffed.

These seven characters maintain a constant dance of attraction and repulsion, misunderstanding and revelation, the centre of which is the enigmatic Carel himself - a priest who believes that, God being dead, His angels have been released.

Product Description:

Carel Fisher is a priest who is experiencing doubt and beginning to feel hate for God. The novel explores the forces of good and evil, and studies a religious man transferring his faith from one force to the other. This Collected Edition is published to honour Iris Murdoch's 70th birthday.

Review:

"Iris Murdoch was one of the best and most influential writers of the twentieth century...she kept the traditional novel alive, and in doing so changed what it is capable of" ( Guardian)

" The Time of the Angels is certainly her best; wittier, more lyrical, more deeply felt than ever before. She is an enchantress" ( Sunday Times)

"I can think of few other novelists who could have written so superbly and so surely of the good and evil that encompasses us all" ( Daily Telegraph)
