Iris Murdoch as I Knew Her, Paperback
2.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


A brilliant, controversial and insightful biography.

Fifteen years ago, Iris Murdoch asked A. N. Wilson to be her biographer. This book is a tribute to the novelist he knew for thirty years.

This is not Iris Murdoch the Alzheimer's patient, but Iris Murdoch the witty conversationalist, the emotional chaotic and, above all, the writer.

Both sad and farcical, this completely personal attempt to set the record straight gives us back the fiercely intelligent novelist and professional philosopher, and will cause amusement as it ruffles feathers.

A bit too much of A.N. Wilson, and a bit too little of Iris Murdoch
