Becoming Iris Murdoch (signed)


On 12 December 1948, Iris Murdoch wrote in her journal: ‘One of my more fundamental assumptions is that I have the power to seduce anyone.’ Iris Murdoch is best known for her novels of good and evil, sexual relationships, morality and the power of the unconscious. This award-winning short biography explores Iris Murdoch’s developing views on the world, the flesh, the spirit, the mind and the heart. The powerful personal vision of Murdoch focuses on the part of her life where she herself was very doubtful of her own talents and inclinations.
