Review

It's easy to dismiss Murdoch; she was a clever woman, after all – frumpy, odd, middle-class. What could she know of life? But read her, then tell me: who knew the human heart better? (Charlotte Mendelson Guardian)

The most important novelist writing in my time (A.S. Byatt)

Above all, she was a consummate story-teller, prodigiously inventive and generous, in the realist tradition of Dickens, Jane Austen, George Eliot, Henry James, Tolstoy and Dostoevsky (Independent)

She could describe the ordinary and make it magical (Guardian)

Her art was expansive, non-autobiographical and insistently inventive (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

Iris Murdoch's comic tale of moral dilemmas - now republished as part of the Vintage Classics Murdoch Series - six gorgeous editions of her best, funniest and most subversive novels published to mark her centenary.
