Celebrating the Centenary of a Magnificent Novelist
Iris Murdoch was a dazzling, complicated and bewitching one-off: a philosopher who became a prolific writer of some of the best-loved novels of the 20th century. From The Bell to The Sea, The Sea, The Flight from the Enchanter and A Severed Head, Murdoch’s writing thrums with ideas, sexual intrigue and miraculously shape-shifting characters. Join our panel of Catherine Taylor, Jonathan Gibbs, Charlotte Mendelson to celebrate her work and her legacy.
