    Daily Mail
  • She was a brilliantly clever woman

  • There is no doubt in my mind that Iris Murdoch is one of the most important novelists now writing in English...The power of her imaginative vision, her intelligence and her awareness and revelation of human truth are quite remarkable

    The Times
  • A fabulous novel...funny and poignant and is arguably Murdoch's finest hour
