Read full description of the books:
"I expect you will have heard by now that I am going to marry Giles Brightwalton. We have known and loved each other for ages, but Giles kept thinking he was really homosexual."
Oh, Iris, you're so nuts. I enjoyed this ... but it was a bit overwrought and...:
1) I thought Harry didn't come across as very sexy at all. At one point he was wearing a red bowtie with a black leather jacket!
2) When was this supposed to be set?
3) Folloing on from 2), if you're a millionaire in Thatcher's Britain and you're not thinking about the morality of being a millionaire in Thatcher's Britain ... who are you? Iris's millionaires' timeless "what is good? are we being good?" questions are adorable but peope are dying in the streets of Brixton, Toxteth, Belfast, Tottenham, South Yorkshire, etc.
4) It drags a bit at the end.

Read information about the authorDame Jean Iris Murdoch
Irish-born British writer, university lecturer and prolific and highly professional novelist, Iris Murdoch dealt with everyday ethical or moral issues, sometimes in the light of myths. As a writer, she was a perfectionist who did not allow editors to change her text. Murdoch produced 26 novels in 40 years, the last written while she was suffering from Alzheimer disease.
"She wanted, through her novels, to reach all possible readers, in different ways and by different means: by the excitement of her story, its pace and its comedy, through its ideas and its philosophical implications, through the numinous atmosphere of her own original and created world--the world she must have glimpsed as she considered and planned her first steps in the art of fiction." (John Bayley in Elegy for Iris, 1998)
