Product Details


“One of her best . . . She offers an unusual compound of pleasures: ingenious storytelling, elegant design, the provocations of myth and philosophy.” —Lawrence Graver, The New York Times

“An entertainment, but also a profoundly great work of art . . . It’s hard to keep my enthusiasm for it quiet—it’s such a delightful and deep book at the same time.” ―John Williams, The New York Times Book Review (podcast)

“The most self-revelatory . . . of all her dark comedies.” —The Guardian

“[A] marvelous, heroic novel [and] a gloriously rich tale.” —The Times (London)

“A source of wonder and delight . . . No summary can do justice to the rich intricacy of character and incident with which Miss Murdoch crowds every page.” —Spectator

“This is great Murdoch . . . Her humour is all the more achingly funny because she keeps it on the edge of our vision.” —The Daily Mail
