Novel by the Irish born author, "This ingeniously plotted tragicomedy of errors resumes Iris Murdoch's exploration into the manifold complexities of love." In 2010 it made the long list for the Lost Man Book Prize (a special edition of the Man Booker Prize for books published in 1970).
"Typical Murdochian episodes include a staged rendezvous in a museum, a transvestite Happening in a London flat, a pink teddy bear at an adult birthday party, a nightmare pursuit of a pigeon in the Underground, and a battle royal in a swimming pool. The grotesque and the comic, as always, are used to serious ends and throw light on how we can all be deceived by appearances."
"In 2008, The Times ranked Murdoch twelfth on a list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945"." (Wikipedia)
