Under The Net, Paperback / softback Book

Under The Net Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Iris Murdoch's first novel is set in a part of London where struggling writers rub shoulders with successful bookies, and film starlets with frantic philosophers.

Its hero, Jake Donaghue, is a drifting, clever, likeable young man who makes a living out of translation work and sponging on his friends.

A meeting with Anna, an old flame, leads him into a series of fantastic adventures.

Jake is captivated by a majestic philosopher, Hugo Belfounder, whose profound and inconclusive reflections give the book its title - under the net of language.
