About This Item

Chatto and Windus, 1962. First edition. Hardcover. Good + /good +. Green cloth a little faded on spine. Paper dust jacket worn and rubbed with some small tears.

Synopsis

The nine characters in this novel are all looking for love; and so closely is the web woven that the actions and passions of each are constantly affecting the others. The irony and pathos of this tangled situation has extended Iris Murdoch's powers to the full, but her mastery of it is complete. Impelled by affection, lust, lost scruple, illusion and disillusion, wanting to be free yet needing to be involved, these characters perform the linked figures of their destiny.
