Iris Murdoch – A Centenary Celebration


This collection brings together friends, colleagues, fellow and past students, and those who worked with her to celebrate Iris Murdoch’s life, and mark the centenary of her birth. All contributors reflect on the impact that Murdoch had on their lives as friend, guide, and inspiration. This collection adds substantially to the biographical works already published, and gives a more rounded vision of her both as an intellectual, and a woman who valued her time out of the public eye.  Finally, her friend and fellow author A. N. Wilson reflects on his own biography of Murdoch, the impact she had on his own life and writing, and why she was, ultimately, only fully knowable to herself.

Included are many previously unpublished unique photographs of Iris relaxing and in the company of her closest friends.
