Edmund has escaped from his family into a lonely life. Returning for his mother's funeral he finds himself involved in the old, awful problems, together with some new ones. One by one his relatives reveal their secrets to a reluctant Edmund: illicit affairs, hidden passions, shameful scandals. And the heart of all, there is, as always, the family's loyal servant, the Italian girl.

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
