A new edition of the classic bestselling biography of a great writer by her widower.
When philosopher John Bayley wrote a bestselling, critically acclaimed memoir of his wife, the great novelist and philosopher Iris Murdoch, who had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease for two years.
At times unbearably moving, at times comical, this memoir provides a fitting memorial to Dame Iris. It is an enchanting portrait of a remarkable marriage and an inspiration for anyone whose life is affected by Alzheimers.
John Bayley is the author of the Alice, The Queer Captain, George's Lair and The Red Hat. In addition to Iris he has published two other memoirs with Duckworth, Iris and Friends and Widower's House. He was the Warton Professor of English at the University of Oxford and is a fellow of St Catherine's College.
