The Black Prince Paperback
by Iris Murdoch
This title comes with an introduction by Candia Mcwilliam.
The Black Prince is both a remarkable thriller and a story about being in love.
Bradley Pearson, narrator and hero, is an elderly writer with a 'block'.
Finding himself surrounded by predatory friends and relations - his ex-wife, her delinquent brother, a younger, deplorably successful writer, Arnold Baffin, Baffin's restless wife and engaging daughter - Bradley attempts to escape.
His failure to do so and its aftermath lead to a violent climax and a most unexpected conclusion.
