Reviews

Praise for Iris Murdoch and Under the Net

"Murdoch, a philosophy don at Oxford, was that rarity, a philosophical novelist who could create real characters, not premises with names attached . . . Right out of the gate she displayed all her sinuous gifts--her questing mind, her comic skepticism, her wildly entangled plots." --Time, "All-Time 100 Novels"

"Under the Net announces the emergence of a brilliant talent." --Times Literary Supplement

"Of all the novelists that have made their bow since the war she seems to me to be the most remarkable-behind her books one feels a power of intellect quite exceptional in a novelist." --Sunday Times

"A dazzling story, light and comic in touch." --The Times (London)
