Title: Iris Murdoch as I Knew Her
Description: Hutchinson, 2003. Linnen band met stofomslag. Pp: 275. A brilliant, controversial and insightful biography from the author of the universally acclaimedThe Victorians. A.N. Wilson`s tutor at Oxford was John Bayley, and it was there that Wilson met Irish Murdoch. He remained a close friend of them both, and it was at Iris`s pleading in 1988 that he agreed to write her biography. The biography was bound to be controversial, and Wilson pulls no punches in his attack on Bayley`s own book on Iris and the portrayal of her as an Alzheimer`s victim. Instead, he gives us back the fiercely intelligent novelist and philosopher, and shows us a relationship that was deeply loving yet profoundly eccentric, and very unconventional for its day.
